NOTES: The Society for Philosophical Inquiry was founded by Christopher Phillipps to inspire the formation of what he calls Socrates Cafes. This is when a person facilitates a group discussion about a topic, mainly by asking questions. The website contains some useful tips about how to start a Socrates Cafe or philosopher’s club.
