Socrates Cafe chronicles the authors experience of setting up informal, open discussion groups mainly in cafes to bring philosophy into everyday public life. Inspired by the example of Socrates, he tries to get as many people as possible asking questions about life. This book is mainly put together from the dialogues that emerged out of these gatherings. This book could help get young people interested in doing philosophy, and realising that it is not just a scholastic endeavour but an everyday skill to improve oneself.
