(Important note: The introduction to the discussion will start as soon as possible after 7:30pm; the Fringe Club now closes its doors at 10pm sharp.)
The philosophy is free - you pay only for the food and drinks you order. Purchasing food and drinks is optional, but please, do not consume food or drinks purchased elsewhere during the meeting! On this note, the management of the Fringe Club has asked us to remind all who attend of the following: "The Fringe Club is a non-profit organisation and a charity which promotes arts and culture. Its operation is self supporting through income from F&B, venue hiring, membership, programmes and sponsorship. Philo Cafe is privileged to enjoy the free use of the meeting room. Please return the goodwill and support by buying drinks."
The Fringe Branch of the Hong Kong Philosophy Cafe was established in October of 2000 with the goal of holding regularly scheduled discussions (in English) on serious, mainstream philosophical topics. Meetings begin with a designated participant introducing a particular approach to dealing with the announced topic. After others have a chance to ask questions and/or give feedback to the introducer, a substantial block of time is devoted to small group discussions, with participants being encouraged to migrate between groups at will. Ideas raised during small group discussions are then shared in a concluding plenary session.
All attendees are kindly reminded that you should not bring your own food and drink to consume on the Fringe Club premises. Refreshments are available at the Fringe Club.
Please feel free to contact us if you would like to suggest a topic and/or to introduce a future meeting. For up-to-date information on this and other HKPC branches, or to discuss this meeting's topic online, after it occurs, visit the HKPC's Facebook page at: http://on.fb.me/a2evI9
