Sep’s topic will be conducted by Bro. Doyle Slack on a study of Freemasonry: Is art the daughter of freedom?
After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow.
Synopsis: Johann Christoph Friedrich von Schiller was a German poet, philosopher, physician, historian, and playwright and was quoted as saying “Art is the daughter of freedom.” Orson Wells was an American actor, director, writer, and producer who worked in theatre, radio, and film and was quoted as saying “The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.” The tenets of Freemasonry stand for freedom of thought and freedom of expression, which directly relates to art in all its forms. We will debate whether art flourishes when unfettered or when it is blocked by outside forces.
The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education. We further embrace the concept of a community environment, where ideas can be shared and debated in an open forum. From the seven liberal arts to the arcane, we seek to gain and to share the knowledge that is the legacy of mankind.
