Details

This week we will continue our discussion of ethics. Are moral systems just ways for the weak to try to rein in the strong? If you are one of the strong, why should you not harm others if to do so would benefit you? Please read "Unforgivable Curses," here: http://www.bmeacham.com/blog/?p=74 .

This group typically reads a short article, often a blog post by Bill Meacham, ahead of time and discusses it at the meeting. We approach philosophy as free human beings engaged in the world. The discussion format is free-form, and it is always quite lively. Links to the articles will be posted in advance of each meeting.
