The Gonzaga Socratic Club seeks to promote open philosophical inquiry into the Christian worldview.   In the spirit of Socrates, our aim is to "follow the argument wherever it leads" concerning the truth of Christian doctrine and practice.  Anyone interested in philosophical inquiry into Christianity is welcome to participate in the activities of the Gonzaga Socratic Club.

Meetings of the Gonzaga Socratic Club are held once a month during the academic year.  Fall 2014 marks the 10th anniversary of the Club's activities; meetings will be held on Fridays from 4:00-5:30 in College Hall 101 on the following dates: September 19, October 17, November 14, and December 5.  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 famous 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.

Audio and video recordings of many recent Gonzaga Socratic Club meetings are now available as links on the archived schedule of events.
