I adopted the Orlando Thinkers Discussions’ Meetup group at 640 members in 2015 and we’re now over 2,000 members going strong. It’s a fantastic group of highly educated, international, and deep-thinking individuals. The attendance is a nice mix of regulars, new members, and special interest goers. Our discussions typically remain civil, enlightening, and highly sociable. We discuss a wide variety of topics – anything that is worthy of thought and discussion. Some of our past topics have been:

  • The Social Contract
  • Totalitarianism
  • Feminism
  • Socialism
  • AI – The Rise of Machines
  • Plato’s Republic
  • Atles Shrugged
  • Jungian Archetypes
  • What is Love?
  • Taoism
  • Minimalism & Thoreau
  • The Analects & Confusious
  • Narcissism
  • Neurodiversity
  • What is Gender?
  • Utopia by Sir Thomas More
  • Renaissance Humanism
  • Eugenics
  • Animal Farm by George Orwell
  • The stuff souls are made of
  • Aestheticism
  • Epicurianism
  • Karl Marx & the Communist Manifesto
  • Stoicism
  • Free Will
  • Wealth & the Commons

Note: The Subjects listed are not promoted but serve as topics open for discussion. The Orlando Thinkers’ Discussion group welcomes members from all walks of life and does not affiliate itself with any particular view point.

Many of our members organize their own groups and we often collaborate, either by co-listing events or by co-hosting events, the Orlando Stoics and the Central Florida Freethought Community in particular.
