CFI New York City
The Center for Inquiry-New York City hosts leading thinkers for lectures and panel discussions on science, philosophy, and religion; works with media and opinion makers; supports local campus and community groups; and hosts the Center’s mission to the United Nations. The Center for Inquiry in New York City’s programming falls into two broad categories: intellectual and social. Intellectual programming includes several ongoing series: “The Science and Philosophy of” a series of panel discussions featuring scientists and philosophers paired for conversations on philosophical concepts amenable to empirical study, “Voices of Reason” featuring authors and other speakers for lectures on ethics, science, and religion and “Truth Uncorked” featuring local intellectuals who talk about their ideas with a smaller audience in a relaxed setting. Their social programs include: “Philosophy and Fries” a volunteer-run public philosophy discussion group help at a local restaurant, “CFI-NYC Student Discussion Group” a student-led discussion group that meets in Manhattan, “CFI-NYC Harlem Discussion Group” a volunteer-led discussion group that meets in Harlem as well as a scavenger hunt, walking historical tour, and magic and comedy shows.
