Our Club is a great place for people to get together to explore the art of “structured argument” and have conversations on many topics. Obviously, the benefits of debate are enjoyed most by the people who actually do it. And yet, there is much to be said for listening to debates as well: spectators often learn a new way of thinking about a problem or an issue. Just as Socrates spurred his listeners to examine their assumptions 2,500 years ago, Debates Club today encouraging attendants to question, to listen to each other and to explore interesting subjects openly and in the spirit of tolerance and understanding. More than a mere verbal or performance skill, debate embodies the ideals of reasoned argument, tolerance for divergent points of view and rigorous self-examination.
This Club sees debate as a way to promote understanding, cooperation, and a free and lively exchange of ideas. In bringing together people from vastly different backgrounds, competitive debating is a fun activity in which we break down boundaries, showing that different views can be explored in a way that connects rather than divides us. Participants will learn the basics of argumentation and debate through regular Club meetings. Feel free to invite your friends!
