Free Admission - you pay for any food and drinks you order

Synopsis

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. 
 

Topic: "What would it mean for a human being to be perfect? Hints from Kant and Victor Hugo"
Suggested reading: “Les Misérables” by Victor Hugo
Introduced by: Steve Palmquist 
Moderated by: Guy Lown
