Reading philosophy can be a bit dry — so adding alcohol and discussion can make learning more enjoyable. Put aside the speed-dating pamphlet and come meet interesting people, talk about the big questions and share your thoughts on difficult questions like the meaning of life and how to live well during the weekly gathering of Grassroots Philosophy. With over 200 members across Lansing, the group holds diverse discussions on anything and everything from 6:30-8 p.m. Thursdays at Kelly’s Downtown, 220 S. Washington St. in Lansing. Designed as a comprehensive resource for community members to engage in thoughtful discussion, the group forgoes topical issues to examine the assumptions that modern society frequently takes for granted. Drawing from psychology, philosophy, biology, behavioral economics, anthropology, history, neuroscience and a few other disciplines, the group looks at the most prominent questions that individuals must face in the 21st century.
