The Presocratics - Hardcore Philosophy @ The Click

This week, join the Hanoi Philosophy Forum for Hardcore Philosophy - a free, weekly exploration of academic, historical philosophers.

Each week, a new text is chosen from the philosophical canon, quality discussion questions are devised based on the text, and attendees come to discuss and debate. No frill, no games, no music, no art, just philosophy.

This week, we explore the Presocratics.
