These male-only conversations are facilitated by Dr. Rob Grant. The intention is not to lecture, teach, correct anyone’s views or change anyone’s behaviour. Instead, participants are invited to articulate their ideas and have their voices heard, while creating an atmosphere where ideas can be challenged and questioned, free from ridicule or personal offence. Our aim is to reflect on fundamental ideas in order to expose the assumptions that lay behind individuals’ beliefs and values. We want to create a space to reflect on how we come to believe what we believe, and in so doing, reveal the lens through which we see the world. While this can be disconcerting and confusing, we aim to embrace uncertainty and doubt, rather than retreating into over-simplified beliefs. This practice draws on the rich tradition of philosophical dialogue which goes back over two thousand years to Socrates, who conducted his philosophical investigations in the Agora (public square) of Athens through conversation and dialogue with citizens.
