Meetings of the Gonzaga Socratic Club are
normally held once a month during the academic year, four
times each semester. In academic year 2017-18 we
commemorate and reflect on the Protestant Reformation on its
500th anniversary (according to the stories, Martin Luther
posted the 95 Theses on the door of Wittenberg church on
October 31, 1517). Information
regarding the current schedule of the Gonzaga Socratic Club's
activities can be found here.
The Gonzaga Socratic Club takes its inspiration
from the Oxford Socratic Club, which was founded at Oxford
University in 1941 and presided over by C. S. Lewis from its
founding until his move to Cambridge University in 1954.
The Club held a special celebration of C. S. Lewis at the
meeting on Friday, November 22, 2013, the 50th anniversary of
Lewis' death; video of that event is available here.
The 10th Anniversary of the Gonzaga Socratic Club featured a
look back to the history of the Oxford Socratic Club by
philosopher James Stockton of Boise State University; video of
that event is here.
Video recordings of Gonzaga Socratic Club
meetings since Fall 2010 are available as links on the archived schedule of events;
audio of some meetings before Fall 2010 is also
available. You can also browse videos of Socratic Club
meetings on the gonzagasocraticclub
channel on YouTube where they are stored.
