Due to scheduling changes, this discussion has been moved to Saturday Nov 10. The room is the Latino/Hispanic conference room A. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Andrew E. Wilson Ph.D. will lead a discussion on how Humanism, as a philosophy, intersects with the world in the 21st century; and how we, as humanists, should engage with the world. Some of the questions considered will include: -- What are some of the most important issues in the world from a humanist point-of-view? -- How does a humanist approach to these issues differ from that of an atheist or other non-believer? -- In particular, does the humanist approach offer benefits that bring solutions to some of these issues into our reach?
The format of this talk will be a brief (less than 20 mins.) presentation of Andrew's thoughts, followed by approximately 60 mins. of group discussion.
