Program Description


Everyone is welcome to the open-topic discussions of the Socrates Cafe. At each meeting participants may suggest topics, and we vote to choose the topic.  Then we have a moderated discussion, in which everyone may address the topic and the issues raised. The rule is moderation - we participate to hear all viewpoints and politely express what we know, not to insist upon our own viewpoint. Socrates CafĂ© are gatherings around the world where people from different backgrounds get together and exchange thoughtful ideas and experiences while embracing the central theme of the Socratic method: that we learn more when we respectfully listen and debate ideas with others.
