When: Monday, November 13th 6 - 8 pm - Harwood Union High School Library
Community Socrates Café with Christopher Phillips, author of Socrates Café: A Fresh Taste of Philosophy:
“How do we balance freedom and security in our Democracy?”
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.
