Athens Philosophy Café in English

Our Philosophy Café is a monthly meeting to discuss some of the most challenging questions of philosophy at Lexi-Logos, a charming Language & Culture Center in Plaka, downtown Athens.

The aim of the Philosophy Café is to introduce different philosophical topics – mainly, but not only, from the Ancient Greek Philosophy – and to discuss them together with the participants in a free exchange of ideas.
The meetings start with a presentation by a professional philosopher about the month’s subject and are followed by an analysis and discussion with the participants.
Our Philosophy Café is open to everyone interested in philosophy.
The meetings are held in English. Residents from all over the world in Athens, visitors, and also Greeks are welcome!
The meetings start at 8.00 pm until 9.00 pm.
