The Dallas Examined Life Philosophy Group Monthly Meetup

  • Nov 14, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

TOPIC:

Meta Philosophy (the Philosophy of Philosophy)

Humans have been philosophers for quite some time. But where has this gotten us? It seems like with every answer we find, multiple questions arise. Furthermore, there are some really big questions which the philosophical world has been mulling over for thousands of years and yet which we also have no answers. With that in mind, what's the point?

Questions:
1. What is philosophy?
2. What is it good for?
3. Are there certain kinds of questions philosophy is better suited to answer? Are there questions it's poorly suited to answer?
4. What is the purpose of philosophy?
5. How does this relate to science? Are the two at odds?

 

Location and Price:

This meetup will be just outside the cafe inside Half-Price Books (near the fish tank and crystal display). There is also a suggested (but by no means mandatory) $2 donation to help cover the cost of maintaining this meetup group.

    Hi Ivy, free will is an oxymoron-- will - implying there are choices but no human has been asked to be a human or a cockroach to be a cockroach, and free - we all know that no-thing is free. BTW, Happy early birthday, Ivy.

    Depends on the topic which, as of now, is "to be determined." Hey, how bout that for a topic: "To be determined or to be free?"
