Dostoevsky's Grand Inquisitor: God, Freedom, and Meaning
One of Dostoevsky's most compelling stories is that of the Grand Inquisitor who captures and interrogates the person of Jesus Christ. Please join us for a discussion of this classic, existentialist piece that is buried inside the larger novel, The Brothers Karamazov. Please read the just the chapter on the Grand Inquisitor and the chapter directly preceding it on the existence of God. We will discuss how Ivan and Alyosha think about God and the challenging questions placed to Christianity and the powers of the church in their discussion. Come join us for a rich and lively discussion!

What we're about

So you're into existentialism? Let's explore the literary works of the great existentialist thinkers, their lives, and achievements. On the menu are writers such as Sartre, Frankl, Camus, Nietzsche, de Beauvoir, Kierkegaard, Arendt, Dostoevsky, Kafka, Solzhenitsyn and many more. Their ideas can all be the glorious fodder for our book discussion. Who we choose to read all depends on the collective decision of the group.

Our discussions will be rooted not only in philosophy but in how these writers speak to our own free authentic decision-making TODAY. If "life is a daring adventure or nothing," let's share some of the adventure together.

PLEASE NOTE: If you don't come to meetups with two months, your name will be deleted from the membership because your membership costs money. Please don't join if you're not serious about attending.
