Socrates Cafe - Meeting at Memorial Park

Event Type: Adult
Date: 10/19/2021
Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Time: 5:00 PM
Description:
 This month, Socrates Cafe is meeting outside at Memorial Park in Beacon. Bring a chair!

We are meeting at the top of the hill of Robert Cahill Drive. This is the "wooded" area of Robert Cahill Drive.

Our philosophy discussion will be socially distanced at least 6 feet apart.


Join moderator Dan Fisherman in a Socratic dialog that explores a philosophical, ethical, or socio-political issue using questions that probe underlying assumptions and statements. The goal is not to come out on top in an argument, but to arrive at a deeper appreciation for a subjectís richness and complexity.

Dan Fisherman has been facilitating communal philosophical inquiry in the Hudson Valley since 2003, when he started the philosophy with children program at the Randolph School in Wappingers fall. He has worked with children at every grade level, most recently with middle and high school students at Poughkeepsie Day School and the Rivertown Homeschoolers Hub. Dan is a member of the faculty at Montclair State University, where he teaches educational philosophy. He has a Masters degree in analytical philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania, and a doctorate from Montclair State.
