Topic of this event: The Value of Work … and the Value of Those Who Don’t
In American culture, we are what we do … personal identity is often a function of our work or profession. What happens when we no longer work … either because we are retired or because advancing technology has displaced us, and our professions, from the work force?
This group is committed to "practical" philosophy: We will begin each session by discussing a current topic of interest ... immigration, gun control, race, etc., etc ... and will tease out the moral and ethical issues that arise from that topic.
Then, over a cup or two of good coffee, we will challenge each other to see how our personal opinions relate to the larger world view and understanding of life that each of us brings to the table. The goal is not necessarily to persuade others to adopt our point of view. Rather, we seek to clarify our own thinking and in doing so, arrive at a deeper understanding of the world around us.
All views, religious beliefs and political opinions are welcome and respected here....so please don't hesitate to join us. However, we do ask everyone to keep the discussion respectful. We are a friendly group!
No prior education or experience needed ... anyone who looks around and asks "why?" is engaged in philosophy. Join us!
