What is the Purpose or Justice of War?
October's topic will be conducted by Brother Claradene Wycoff on a study of Freemasonry: What is the Purpose or Justice of War? After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow. Where does the right path of action lie when one duty conflicts with another? The Bhagavad-Gita has been the exemplary text of Hindu culture for centuries, both in India and in the West. Set on an ancient battlefield where the armies of rival cousins stand ready to do battle, it is the epic tale of the warrior-prince Arjuna as he confronts a life-or-death moral dilemma. This crisis central to the Gita has inspired centuries of Indian philosophers, Freemasons, as well as Western thinkers such as Thoreau, Emerson, Eliot, Einstein, and Thomas Merton. Join us as we examine the Gita, using a Masonic framework of analysis and decision-making, to answer the question: What is the purpose or justice of war? Mission Statement 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.
