Spinoza PhilosopherCome to the Philosophy Book Club/Cafe to discuss Philosophy Classics in a relaxed manner. The meetings are on the Third Monday of every month on a Monday night at 6:30 pm.

Our object to discuss the ideas of great philosophers in an informal way. The presider, the librarian, will outline the thought of a philosopher and a classic text in a short summary form at the beginning of a session and then the intention is to provoke discussion of the main ideas of that philosopher.

Reading the philosophy text will not be required only response to the selections from the text read to the group by the leader of the discussion. Sessions have been lively and thought provoking. Sample philosophers have been Plato in his Republic, Aristotle in his Ethics, and Spinoza in his Ethics.

The Philosophy Book Club/Cafe disucssions will be open to all adults and teens.
