The San Diego Philosophy Forum presents evening talks by local and guest philosophers in a food-friendly setting. Meetings are held just about every fourth Tuesday, the December Holiday Tuesday excepted.
Our mission is to make academic philosophy accessible to just about anyone who's interested. Since our meetings are primarily to hear professional philosophers speak, we differ from other groups in San Diego, aimed at letting everyone present speak. After the meetings, however, the audience usually gets to (respectfully) question the speaker about his or her presentation.
Audience members begin to gather at about 6:00 PM at the North University Public Library: 8820 Judicial Drive, (near the 805 highway Nobel Exit), to socialize and sometimes meet the speaker -- light refreshments and coffee are usually available, (thanks volunteers). The presentation begins as close to 6:30 PM, as possible, and goes from 20 to 40 minutes. Q&A goes until about 8:00, when the program ends. If things get particularly engaging, the extremely kind Branch Manager/(and Philosopher in his own right), Trevor Jones, sometimes allows us to go a little past 8.
