|Café Philo DC: "Does Altruism Exist?"
Needless to say, Saturday's topic is fraught with timeliness and richness, given the poignant human responses to the Boston Marathon bombings last week.
No Registration Required
Café Philo DC is a moderated, roundtable discussion for the general public 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? Who belongs to that voice in my head? Does freedom of choice enslave us? Should atheists proselytize? Is romance a necessary illusion? and Are There Moral Limits to Self-defense?
Discussions take place on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month and are complemented by a Yahoo discussion list called Café Philo DC Dialogue at 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.
