|Socrates Cafe - Meeting at the Library|
Event Type: Adult|
Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Time: 5:00 PM
Socrates Cafe is now meeting at the Library. There is no need for reservations - just arrive at 4pm.
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.
