For ages 17 - Adults
Join us for a facilitated discussion meeting that explores the ramifications of social mores, the nature of human life, and anything else under the sun. The goal of this program of practical philosophy is to help libraries, retirement communities, and other venues engage the public in reflection and discussion on topics such as the importance of reputation, closed-
mindedness, the nature of beauty, patience, friendship, optimism, and similar subjects. The purpose of each meeting is to encourage people to think and reflect deeply on the issues raised; it is not a showcase for people to vent opinions or complaints. There is just one rule: we do not discuss partisan political issues. The program will be part of an online discussion forum. Sponsored by Light, a non-profit corporation serving humanity, and Carroll County Public Library.
