Community Socrates Café!

Community Socrates Café!  

Waterbury Public Library Wednesday May 10, 6:30- 8:00  PM


"Does Privacy Matter In Our Country Today?”

A Socrates Café is an opportunity for dialogue about timeless and timely questions that all human beings deal with in their lives. Rather than being a debate or a discussion, a Socrates Café is a dialogue where participants are encouraged to listen to each other and to learn from one another. This form of discourse- and its focus on the search for knowledge- comes from Socrates, who observed that, "Wisdom Begins in Wonder." These gatherings are open to all members of the community, regardless of age, experience or background. Harwood students who are experienced in leading Socratic Dialogues will facilitate the discussions.

This will be the first Socrates Café to be held at the Waterbury Public library. The discussion question at the upcoming May 10th café embodies the library’s commitment to lifelong learning and to being a space and organization that champion’s ideas and creativity.

Community members of all ages are invited, and refreshments will be provided.  For questions and more information, please  contact Katherine Cadwell,  Harwood Union  High School faculty member a, [email protected] or Judi Byron at the Waterbury Library,[email protected], 244-7036
