(Alcohol consumption is optional) Beer and Philosophy Night is what I believe university should have been: intelligent conversation and friendly debate, preferably over a few drinks. My definition of philosophy is fairly broad ("the love of wisdom"), hence our discussions range over a wide variety of topics, from science to art to religion. We've discussed topics such as: Can capitalism be ethical? What is the nature of the self? Should we help other people (even if they don't "deserve" our help)? How can we create meaning in our lives? I attempt to emphasize the practical aspects of philosophy (although we tend to get closer to metaphysics by the end of the evening). All participants are expected to be civil, polite, and responsible. Discourteous conduct will be gently admonished, and such behaviour shall not be tolerated indefinitely. Please note that I will be audio recording B&P with an eye toward potentially making this available as a podcast.
