Welcome to the conversation!

The Socratic Happy Hour is a gathering for grad students in New York City who enjoy having civil and convivial conversations about substantive subjects, without having to take ourselves too seriously. These conversations began two years ago when a small circle of friends who disagree deeply about life, the universe, and everything discovered that talking with each other about our differences and our doubts, our questions and our convictions was a lot more interesting than talking about the weather. Despite our differences, we all agree that good company and conversation pairs best with good beer and wine. If you’re a grad student in New York City and you want to participate in one of our gatherings,  drop us a line on our Questions? page.

And remember: Friends don’t let friends lead unexamined lives.
