UPDATE (January 26, 2022):
Gonzaga University returned to in-person events with the beginning of Fall semester 2021. This allowed Fall 2021 events of the Gonzaga Socratic Club to be held in-person as well. Despite the increase in COVID cases resulting from the Omicron variant, we plan to hold Spring 2022 events in person and on campus as well. The one exception to this is the planned event on January 31, which will be held in a remote Zoom format. Check current schedule for event information as updates are available.
Meetings of the Gonzaga Socratic Club are normally held once a month during the academic year, four times each semester. The 2021-22 Academic Year marks the 18th year of operation of the Gonzaga Socratic Club; information about this semester can be found on the current schedule page.
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
Gonzaga Socratic 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
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.
