Plato’s Republic

The purpose and aim of the server is to be an environment conducive to intellectual growth and enrichment for our members. We wish to use reason above all else to solve problems and questions, particularly regarding those of politics and philosophy. “Truth" is our highest good and value, and our loyalty ultimately is to the truth only. Thus in Plato's Republic, we seek to use reason and logic to find truth through rigorous thinking that we wish to be as self-aware, self-correcting, self-directed and self-disciplined as humanly possible. We seek to create members who extol objectivity and eschew dogma as that is the first step in becoming a lover of wisdom.

A genuine server for discussion
I joined a couple of servers before this one hoping to find an active philosophical server. Not only did this exceed expectations, but its activities extend to politics, theology, aesthetics, etc. with the same quality and in an organized manner.

A great and active server for the best and high quality political and philosophical discussions
On this amazing server, you'll be able to engage in great and high quality political and philosophical discussions through a wide variety of topics. From morning till night, no matter what time it is, this server is almost always active. Moderation is quite balanced and transparent as well compared to other servers. You can always be learning something new while in there. Personally, I'm really glad to have joined this server.

An ACTUAL discussion server
Servers concerning so-called "philosophical" and "political" discussion are a dime a dozen on Discord, but Plato's Republic is the first one to not disappoint me. There are many dedicated channels for different topics concerning politics, philosophy as well as experimental and human sciences, and even some channels for shitposting and less formal #political-brawling. Many of the contributing members are very knowledgeable and sharp in different domains and speaking with them is often interesting. The staff team is also effective in dealing with issues like trolls, while still (most of them anyway) not being too dogmatic in their approach.

All in all, this is the only server I've ever seen where one can have interesting long-term conversations concerning philosophy, the members are similar to academic servers like The Philosophy Chat. Would definitely recommend if you want to discuss and learn - the library channels are full of well-chosen works that can help you in whatever research you're carrying out.
