DOORS 6PM // KITCHEN OPENS 6PM // SHOW STARTS 7:30PM // With guests Alexandre Lefebvre & Mish Grigor

After sell-out shows across London, New York and Melbourne, the Sophia Club returns once again to take audiences on an immersive journey of ideas, conversation and performance.

The philosophy you already have

Should individuals be free to pursue their own passions and interests in life? It’s very likely you agree with this liberal principle. But it’s less clear that ideals of personal freedom and fairness are enough to build a sustainable, meaningful and ethical life. What about ideals like interdependence or having a higher purpose? Philosopher Alexandre Lefebvre argues that liberalism is all we need, both in the personal and the political realm. Come along to see if he can convince you, with a dash of humour from charismatic performer and writer Mish Grigor. Hosted by Aeon Media’s editorial director, Brigid Hains. 


Everyone has a stake in philosophy; its vitality can be drawn out and re-energised through conversation, with each other, and the arts. The Sophia Club creates a space for people to come together, ponder big questions, encounter new perspectives, and appreciate the rich connections between thought, emotions and artistic expression. 

We call this space Live Philosophy.

The Sophia Club is the latest venture from Aeon Media, the publisher of Aeon and Psyche magazines. To be the first to hear about our events program, follow us on Instagram @sophiaclub_live and sign up to our newsletter at sophiaclub.co.  

Our events are produced on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Woiworung language group of the Kulin Nation, and we respectfully acknowledge the traditional custodians. We value the knowledge traditions and rich practice of philosophy among Aboriginal and and Torres Strait Islander communities in Australia, and all First Nations peoples around the world.
