Meetings of the Gonzaga Socratic Club are normally held once a month during the academic year, four times each semester. The 2023-24 Academic Year marks the 20th anniversary of the Gonzaga Socratic Club. A special event of this 20th anniversary year is a talk by C.S. Lewis scholar and historian of the Oxford Socratic Club, Jim Stockton, who will address Lewis's role in the Oxford Socratic Club as a model of integrating faith and reason. Information on this and other events scheduled for Fall 2023 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.
