What is enough? How do we know what’s real and what’s illusion? What is death? Is it ever OK to lie? Where do we find real value? If you've ever questioned some of society’s most basic assumptions, then come try out the Socrates Café. We'll have a discussion in the spirit of Christopher Phillips’ book "Socrates Café: A Fresh Taste of Philosophy." No preparation is required. Just come with questions and an open mind.
