A café philo is an informal discussion group. Absolutely everyone is welcome; the only requirement is a willingness to be open and friendly toward others’ points of view. Participants discuss topics broadly related to philosophy, such as, “What is Art?” “Are We Free?” “Religion and Science,” etc. At the end of the meeting, participants propose and vote on topics for the next meeting; the topic that gets the most votes will be discussed at next café philo.
