Socrates Cafe

Socrates drinking

Socrates Cafés are a recent phenomenon: they are gatherings around the world where people from different backgrounds get together and exchange thoughtful ideas and experiences while embracing the central idea that that we learn more when we question with others.

A typical Socrates Café group meets in a public place, is open to anyone who wishes to attend, and Socratically explores a question which is chosen by vote or which is announced shortly in advance. Typically there are no prerequisites, and no reading or other preparation is required.

Our own Café is open to all philosophically-minded students, and will be a place to explore philosophical questions outside of the classroom. Bring your questions and your lunch! We look forward to seeing you there!
