Members’ Salon

Historically, the salon was a place where people would gather to have intellectual, and often entertaining, discussions in 17th and 18th century France. Notable thinkers would gather at the salon to discuss everything from current news to literature to philosophy. They would exchange ideas with their compatriots in an effort to improve their understanding through dialectic. Even Martha Washington (wife of George) held weekly gatherings where everyone from members of Congress to ordinary citizens were invited to the executive mansion for discussions. Conduct in the salon was expected to be exemplary of polite society and intellectualism.

2ndLook believes that we can all benefit by returning to the traditions of dialogue found in the salons.

Welcome, distinguished members.
