We will open a literary cafe near Tokyo (formerly “SF Philosophy Cafe”).
The first session will be held from 16:00 to 19:00 on Sunday, August 18.We have started the second date and time adjustment (hope survey of the date of the event).
Literary cafes are similar to so-called philosophy cafes, but they are a gathering to discuss and talk about topics contained in literature, art, movies, and overseas dramas.(Whether you can drink or not depends on the venue.)）
A philosophy cafe is a collection of discussions on a variety of themes.Originally, the French philosopher Marc Sote started as “Socrates’s Cafe”.There are not strict rules, and the way of operation varies depending on the planner.You do not have to reach an agreement as a group.
Anyone can participate and there is no need to prepare.Students are also welcome.Participation for religious or business solicitation purposes is prohibited.
At the Literary Cafe, we also refer to the “Theory of Knowledge” course of the International Baccalaureate Qualification.
Start at 16:00 and talk about two specific subjects for a total of three hours, and then have a drinking party.Participation fee is 500 yen + food and beverage actual expenses.Open regularly (once a month).
The first theme is “Do you need expertise to appreciate art?”How can religion and science work together?(May be changed or added).
Location: Meiji University Global Front (Ochanomizu) or Shimokitazawa
Literary cafes adopt the following rules:
- Respect different opinions.It is important not only to assert your thoughts, but also to gain awareness from other people’s opinions.
- Explain your thoughts in your own words.Explain not only other people’s quotes, but also what you thought.
- Explain in plain language that is understandable to all participants.Be sure to explain when you want to use specialized concepts.
We will inform you of the schedule in Yugen e-mail magazine.If you are interested, please register.
