As part of our current program (Intell. of Emotions) and for those of you who are film buffs, the Blanton Museum, currently has an exhibition dealing with the movie film's attempt to represent interior states or landscapes(emotions). In super-slow motion actors on LCD screens transition from one emotion to another. Bill Viola(the artist/filmmaker) identified 4 basic emotions- joy, sorrow,anger and fear. You can check it out on their web-site..enjoy...Terry
The Austin Philosophy Discussion Group (APDG) offers many opportunities for discussions of philosophy and philosophical issues. No advance preparation or knowledge is required, unless stated in the meeting description. All our meetings are free of charge, but we occasionally pass the hat to collect money for operating expenses. Look at the Money tab on Group Tools for an accounting.
Click on Calendar in the Meetup tab to see details about upcoming meetups. The types of meetups that we have are:
- Weekly Lecture/Discussion groups, which offer free DVD lectures and discussions covering a wide range of philosophical topics.
- Special Events and Lectures covering topics of interest to our membership.
Also, our web site often features lively conversations, within a culture that values civil discourse.
"Civil discourse is engagement in discourse (conversation) intended to enhance understanding."
