The Chicago Colloquium

Do you find that you frequently wax philosophical, lost in the depths of abstract thought? Contemplating the meaning of life? Or the existence of other minds? Was Plato your childhood hero? If so…

The Chicago Colloquium, an informal monthly discussion group focusing on philosophical issues, extends an open invitation to its next I-Thou dialogue. The group meets on the 4th Friday of each month from 7:00-9:00 PM. Check it out at Barbara’s Bookstore at UIC. 1218 South Halsted Street.
