“Where Do We Get the Idea That the Beauty of an Explanation Has Anything to Do with the Truth?”
No Registration Required
Café Philo DC is a moderated, philosophical roundtable discussion for the general public, including members of the U of C community, founded by Ken Feldman in 1999. Modeled on the Parisian prototype, the event welcomes all philosophically curious people to discuss the big questions in life. Topics usually encourage the practical application of philosophical principles. Past topics include: Am I sane? Does knowledge inhibit the imagination? What is humor? Is mathematics merely a human construct? Are we living in a constant state of fear? Does it make any difference if there are multiverses? Does freedom of choice enslave us? Should atheists proselytize? and Is romance a necessary illusion?
Discussions usually take place on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month and are complemented by a Yahoo discussion list called Café Philo DC Dialogue (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/cafephilodcdialogue/). Please contact Ken Feldman at [email protected] with questions and requests to be placed on the listserv for meetings and background material relevant to each topic.
