Socrates Café to be Held At Harwood

  • Wednesday, January 6, 2016, 6:00-7:30 PM
  • Harwood Middle School Multipurpose Room

Students in Katherine Cadwell’s Introduction to Philosophy class will host a Socrates Café for the entire Harwood community on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 from 6:00—7:30 PM in the HUHS Middle School Multipurpose room.

What is a Socrates Café, you might ask?   A Socrates Café is a gathering where people from different backgrounds get together and exchange thoughtful ideas and experiences while asking questions. Harwood student have been hosting these gathering for the past five years. Anyone and everyone who’d like to engage in a common quest to gain a better understanding of human nature is welcome to attend. We ponder difficult and interesting questions in an effort to become more empathetic people and more critical and creative philosophical inquirers.  

 The discussion on Wednesday, January 6, 2016 has been organized and will be led exclusively by students in the fall semester Introduction to Philosophy class. The entire community will talk together in small groups to discuss such questions, as “Is it ever okay to lie?" "What are the qualities of a hero?"' What is courage?" and other timeless and timely questions. Refreshments will be provided.  

   We hope that you will join us for a lively evening of discussion and dialogue. For questions and more information, please contact Katherine Cadwell at  (802) 522-7410 or at [email protected]
