2019 This Is Philly Philosophy Symposium

Hello All! The LCP Foundation is teaming up with the local Philadelphia Philosophy Meet-up Group to co-host a mini-conference celebrating Philly’s philosophy scene at the Good Karma Café on Pine Street, August 24th from 6 pm to 9pm! It will run like a traditional conference with paper presentations and discussion. But we are also opening up the platform to include alternative philosophical approaches, such as poetry, paintings, music, etc. Come join the fun!


First Open Board Meeting


What up, errrrrrrbody?! This past Saturday, June 29th, The Lawn Chair Philosophy Foundation held its first open board meeting! We met with our friends from the Philadelphia Philosophy Meet-Up Group. We’ve joined forces to plan for an upcoming conference, and we hope to work closely together so that this non profit properly represents the vibrant Philly philosophy scene.

Although, I will say . . . we’re a pretty oddball bunch. We’re more goofy than knightly . . . We had a great time while working hard, and we can’t wait to share with you the fruits of our labor! More to come!

In his Existentialism, Sartre advocates for authenticity – for recognizing that one’s present self is not determined by one’s past behavior or some innate personality qualities; that we choose to perpetuate how it is we exist in relation to, and how it is we create with, our surroundings. To cover over this truth and exist under the pretense that “…
