Books and movies take us to places we haven’t visited before; they offer us a wider window and the ability to view a different world. These works of art allow us to explore our minds, to experience and feel things we wouldn’t normally feel, and to be exposed to new and challenging ideas. No more so is this evident than in the genre of Science Fiction.

At the core of the greatest Sci-Fi’s classics lie deep philosophical questions: Should we grant clones and A.I. human rights? Is it ethical to bio-engineer future generations of humans? Are we slowly slipping into a dystopia?

Join us for an evening of casual discussion around the topics of science fiction philosophy as found in Star Wars, Blade Runner, The Matrix, Orwell, Huxley, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and many more.
