Socrates Cafe Fort Wort

Intelligent Discussion with Thoughtful Perspectives

Our Story

Inspired by Socrates Café created by Christopher Phillips, we are a small collection of friends who came together to form our version of this discussion group in October, 2023.

Our Mission


Our discussions explore the philosophical questions that have existed for centuries and examine how they are relevant today.

Socrates Cafe’ is a community of individuals who are passionate about making the world a better place through philosophical inquiry and discussion. We believe that by exploring the big questions about life, meaning, and purpose, we can develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world, and we can inspire each other to live more altruistic and fulfilling lives.

We are committed to creating a safe and welcoming space for people of all backgrounds and beliefs to engage in open and respectful dialogue. We believe that everyone has something valuable to contribute, and we are eager to learn from each other’s perspectives.
Our mission is to:
  • Engage in meaningful and thoughtful discussion about altruism and philosophy
  • Promote critical thinking and open-mindedness
  • Inspire and motivate each other to live more altruistic and fulfilling lives
  • Build a community of individuals who are passionate about making the world a better place
We believe that introspection has the power to transform our lives and to make the world a better place. By engaging in philosophical discussion, we can challenge our assumptions, expand our horizons, and deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us. We can also learn how to live more ethically and altruistically.
We invite you to join us on our journey to create a more just and compassionate world.

Socrates Café is exactly what I needed in my life—a group of intelligent people who like to ponder big questions and consider diverse perspectives. The topics are wide-ranging and open-ended, and the discussions are non-threatening. Everyone is encouraged to share their ideas and ask further questions. I've met fascinating people from all walks of life, and I'm thrilled to have found this group!

The prime objective of our Socrates Cafe process is to create a life worth living in a better world. Toward that end, the process will result in our capacity to tap into an innate potential that’s been dormant since birth. That potential is our human ability to create. It warms my heart to realize that the members of our group are working together to create our Socrates Café and keep it going. And to participate in the creation of our website.

This group is a hidden gem in our community. It's a place where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together to learn, share ideas, and grow. The group is led by a knowledgeable and experienced facilitator, and the discussions are always lively and informative. I highly recommend this group to anyone looking for a challenging and rewarding intellectual experience.
