Tea and Philosophy! A book discussion of William James’ A Pluralistic Universe

  • January 12, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • Baltimore Ethical Society

Join Hugh Taft-Morales for tea, snacks, and philosophical discussion. There is enough food for philosophic thought in William James’ A Pluralistic Universe to feed an intellectual army. In many ways, from his critique of all-unifying Hegelian absolutism to his analysis of consciousness, this work represents the birth of twentieth century pragmatic thought. We will explore not only the complex metaphysical and epistemological points James raises, but the social and political implications of his approach for today. How do we best create an America where respect for diversity balances our need for continuity and unity?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
