Join us for friendly and philosophic conversation

Our Socrates Cafe is a monthly forum for discussion, where we come together to discuss important issues of significant moral and ethical impact.

Each meeting begins with everyone voting on a discussion topic (either from a prepared list or suggested by an attendee.) Then the group discusses it. This group is not about argumentation or debate; rather, this is all about exploration and inquiry utilizing a tried and true version of the Socratic Method.

No Registration Required. No preparation is necessary. Walk-ins are welcome.
