What we're about
Upcoming events (2)
We had a great May meeting going through Part One of this book. The central theme of which was Resistance- how our belief systems (fear, rationalization, victimhood, etc.) often constrain us from realizing our full potential in different domains of life (career, relationships, health). We didn't all agree with the author, but there was plenty to discuss and debate! Part Two of the book shifts the focus to becoming what Pressfield calls "a pro"- a person who is successful at overcoming Resistance. Hope to see you there!
Second installment of our series of meetings on the theme of justice. This time the question to ponder is- are justice and democracy compatible? For Plato the answer is "no"- democracy was a system that put power in the hands of the ignorant. Are you sympathetic to Plato's critique? Or do you think that, whatever constitutes a just society, it must also be democratic. Is there a way for us to realize some version of "democratic justice"? Come along and join the discussion as we ponder one of the most significant topics in political philosophy.
