In the spirit of Marc Sautet’s “cafés-philos”, join us for a cup of tea while we engage with different philosophers on a variety of topics. The hour long sessions are split between a presentation by the speaker and discussion/Q&A.

This series is done in partnership with Sharing Philosophy, which works to create opportunities for people to learn and to share ideas on what makes a ‘good life’. These opportunities include not only Western philosophies, but also non-Western philosophies, bringing together the world’s various approaches to leading a fulfilling life.
