Socrates Café


Select Wednesdays at 7 pm


JANUARY TOPIC: What constitutes the identity of inanimate objects?


The Huron Public Library is proud to present a monthly meeting of the grass roots community discussion movement, Socrates Café. The group is moderated by Lorain County Community College instructor Jarret Pervola, who brought the concept to the Library in 2011.


Socrates Café got its start when freelance writer Christopher Phillips began organizing open coffee house discussions in the late 1990's. While the group meets consistently on the third Wednesday of each month, discussion topics are decided session by session. Socrates Café, in the spirit of its great philosophical namesake, is concerned with allowing the participants of the regular discussions to determine the ongoing course of their conversations. Each month's topic flows out of the preceding meeting's conversation and hence the interests and concerns of those participating.


No registration required.
