The Dallas Philosophers Forum is a lecture series and discussion group
which meets in the Dallas, Texas metroplex.
The Dallas Philosophers Forum is dedicated to bringing philosophy,
ideas, and intellectual discussion to an interested and educated
audience in the DFW area.
The Dallas Philosopher's Forum is run by "Philosopher's Forum, Inc", a
501(c)3 tax exempt organization.
The philosophy lectures typically
last between 30 and 50 minutes and the talks are followed by an open
question-and-answer period which generates lively discussion.
The philosophy talks are designed to be engaging and non-technical and
thus they are enjoyable by the layperson or academician alike:
Philosophy made user friendly.
