5 Meetup Groups match “Socrates Cafe” near Irvine, CA
Inspired by Christopher Phillips' books, scores of people are meeting for these modern version of Socratic dialogue. These are intended to be group conversations which often move in a spiral, touching on topics in ways that may not be obvious at first. Our purpose is to bring back thoughtful dialogue in counterpoint to the shouting pundits of so-called debate on TV and radio. One need not be an academic or expert. We seek diversity of thought from people from all walks of life. ALL ARE WELCOME. …
PHILOSOPHY is the topic at this friendly, nearly ten-year old group. We sit in a circle and discuss a philosophical question we voted on by email. If you love a good, impassioned yet respectful and rational conversation with like-minded people, join us!
There are no upcoming Meetups.
We will meet every other week (unless people want to meet more) to discuss great works of philosophy. I will outline the readings to get us started, but then we will open it up to the group to see what interests everyone. The readings will be kept short so that you can jump in when you have the time. We will mostly meet around Hollywood (suggestions are welcome for locations) and will be trying out some different times at first to see what works for members.
