What is the role of “philosophy” and philosophical dialogue in an Oncolo Café session?

When you hear the word “philosophy,” what kind of image enters your mind? Are Aristotle, Descartes, and Kant the first names that you recall? Perhaps you are thinking that philosophy is something “difficult.” However, what we do during a session at our Oncolo Cafe does not require any specialized knowledge or expertise; it is not at all difficult.
