YPIN Socratic Seminar
We all agree that unemployment is at unacceptable levels so much so that individuals, nonprofits, the government, and even corporations are developing new programs to create jobs but whose responsibility is it? The government's, corporation's, or yours?
Socratic Seminars aren't for telling you the answers; rather they provide a discussion space to explore the questions. It is a moderated discussion around top issues of the day in true dialectic method. Articles highlighting viewpoints on both sides of an argument are provided as suggested reading, although participants are encouraged to participate even if armed only with their opinions. The Socratic Seminar series does not place parameters on where the discussion may go; rather it provides a starting point and background information to fuel discussion.
Socratic Seminars are sponsored by the Row House Café.
Attendance is limited 25 participants per Seminar.
