Buy philosophycafe a coffee


Penny University invites thinkers to discuss questions that are timeless and universal. It offers an alternative form of learning to structural academic learning.

While content and forums are free, we ask for the price of a coffee for our conversation salons. This is in keeping up with the tradition of medieval coffeehouses ("penny universities"), which spurred creativity and innovation during the age of enlightenment in Europe.

Our salons are meant for people to mingle, exchange ideas and inspire each other in their personal, professional and creative lives. In a world of unaffortable university fees and high economic inequality, our salons invite people from all levels of society. Anyone who can afford a coffee is able to join in.
