*Ever wonder why “Philosophers’ Café” is “s” apostrophe and not apostrophe “s”?
Philosophers’ Cafés are based on the belief that we all have the capacity to employ philosophic inquiry. In fact, the classical Greek Philosopher, Socrates, did not believe that he understood any more about humanity than anyone else. He practiced an open system of philosophy which sought the truth by questioning what we truly know of what we claim. By engaging in discussions such as, “Is Art in the Eye of the Beholder” or “What does Spirituality Mean in Everyday Life?”, we can examine our own preconceived ideas while being exposed to or challenged by other perspectives – all in a friendly and supportive environment.
So, bring your inquiring mind but leave your dogma at the door!
The Summerland Philosophers’ Cafés are loosely based on Simon Fraser University’s program. For more information about their program, go here.
