The Meeting of the Minds Philosophic Inquiry Forum (M&M Philosophy) serves as a weekly forum for examining issues that further our understanding of ourselves and the world that we live in. M&M Philosophy meets every Tuesday, at the Ohio County Public Library in Wheeling. Meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. and are free an open to the public. The group’s organizer, David Weimer, assures the continued, regular operation of this philosophic discussion group. Group participants are encouraged to lead topic discussions. At the beginning of each meeting, general introductions are made, new participants are welcomed, program notes are shared and the evening's agenda is explained. The facilitator for each meeting will be scheduled at least one week in advance. Meetings often include discussions of topics, walks along the river, thought experiments, meditation techniques, and watching films, among other things.
