Announcing a new Meetup for The Berkeley Philosophy Meetup Group!

What: Berkeley Philosophy September Meetup

When: September 23,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: his month's discussion pits an ancient philosopher against a 21st century Professor of Aesthetics. In Phiebus, Plato makes a case that measure and eternal harmony are superior to Beauty (equated with symmetry, a debatable linkage in itself) in having a greater share of truth/innate superiority. Harvard Professor Elaine Scarry has written a heartfelt polemic essay "On Beauty and Being Just". In it she argues that a pleasurable experience of a beautiful object, place or person can instill a desire to embody the experience in the public sphere, serving as a call to social justice and fairness. Written in to her argument is an assumption that the particular/individual/unique can expand the macrocosm/universal/society. Reading for this meeting is Part two of Plato's Philebus
and a Salon interview with Elaine Scarry
