It is very easy to become caught up in the superficial aspects of social networking or spend a lot of time eating and drinking in the vast array of bars and restaurants available to us. Conversation tends to revolve around the same old subjects and the intellectual challenges of this lifestyle allow our brains to be under used. Well, be prepared for a new experience:
Cafe Philo is the mental equivalent of a good workout. This is exercise for the brain, a chance to raise an issue or topical item for debate by all attendees. Everyone attending the event is encouraged to propose a question or subject for debate. The subjects are then voted on and the most popular are debated in the order that they came in the poll.
The debate is moderated by our event chairman who will ensure that everyone has an opportunity to air their own views and opinions on the chosen subjects. He will also ensure that nobody holds the floor for too long. Start thinking of your burning questions now. Please be prompt as latecomers are not encouraged to arrive once the event has started so as not to disrupt the debate.
