A new Juneau discussion group, Socrates Cafe, will gather tonight at the Silverbow for the first of its monthly meetings on a variety of topics. The meeting is not a debate class, but rather a Socratic seminar in which members search for the truth together. It is not about argument but discovery.
At the beginning of each meeting, those gathered will each pose a question. The group will then vote on which question to discuss. The idea is not to arrive at a definitive answer, but to continue pondering.
The first meeting will be on Thursday, June 3, at the Silverbow Inn from 6-8 p.m. For more information, call Sandy at 586-2987.
