The Neo-Socratics was founded in October 2006. It was originally tentatively called The Port Elizabeth Skeptics Society. The name was changed to better reflect the society’s aim of bringing about change through questioning.
The society aims to:
- Increase public awareness of current scientific research
- Increase public awareness of evidence related to pseudo-science claims, fringe-science claims and claims of the paranormal
- Provide a platform for intellectual stimulus.
The society hopes to achieves its aims through a program of:
- Letters and articles in local newspapers and radio
- Presentations to schools, educational institutions and local radio shows
- Promotion of the scientific method
- Public debates
- Monthly talks
- Creating a secular library
- Published scientific articles
The society will meet monthly, on the first Tuesday of every month at 19:00 at the Maritime Club (corner of Cuyler Street and Annerley Terrace).
