The Philosophy Café at Harvard Book Store is a monthly gathering meant for the informal, relaxed, philosophical discussion of topics of mutual interest to participants. No particular expertise is required to participate, only a desire to explore philosophy and its real-world applications. More information can be found at www.philocafe.org.

The Philosophy Café is held on the third Wednesday of each month at 7:30 in the Used Book department on the lower level of Harvard Book Store.

This month:

Secrecy in an Open Society

A democratic society is thought to depend on openess and free availability of information, so that its members can have meaningful debates and make informed decisions. In this session of the cafe, we will consider to what extent government secrecy interferes with the democratic process.
