Saturday Conversations


As humans, we live in a world saturated with purpose. If you look around you it is likely that you will not even be able to find a single thing that lacks any purpose. We have purposefully molded the environments around us, bent them to our will, and embued everything with which we now interact with purpose. Even the very act of transforming our environments is not without purpose. Here we are, swimming in a sea of purpose and yet we might take this all for granted.


• What is purpose?

• What does it mean for an object, action, person, or life to have a purpose? Are these different kinds of purpose?

• Where does purpose come from?

• Is purpose found, assigned, or discovered?

• Can the actions of non-human animals have purpose?

Location and Price:

Upstairs there are many tables and chairs where people can gather and eat. If it's a nice day out, we may sit out on the covered balcony. As always there is a suggested, but by no means necessary, $2 donation which goes towards helping cover the costs of the meetup.

Feel free to post suggestions for future topics here.
