They will last for one hour, including time for audience questions.

Our events are free and  all are welcome.

Ultimate Meaning (And Why We Cannot Have It)

Rivka Weinberg in conversation with Anthony Morgan

The “meaning” of life can refer to several different things, including value, explanation, upshot, impact, significance, purpose, or point. In this event, Rivka Weinberg will consider many dimensions of meaning in life – from beauty to truth to death – before focusing on “point” or “pointlessness”. For Weinberg, this captures the essence of the problem of the meaning of life: it’s pointless. Join us to find out why…

What Matters Most

Valerie Tiberius in conversation with Karen Stohr

Valerie Tiberius will introduce us to a way of thinking about our goals that enables us to reflect on them effectively throughout our life, offers strategies for coping with obstacles to realizing our goals, including gender bias and other kinds of discrimination. Whether we are changing jobs or reconsidering our whole life path, this conversation will be an essential guide to helping us understand what really matters to us and how we can thoughtfully pursue it.

Beauty and Being Alive

Nick Riggle in conversation with C. Thi Nguyen

You didn’t choose to live this delicate and difficult life. Yet when you consider that your existence is fleeting, an inspired sense of urgency can spring forth. In this event, philosopher Nick Riggle will explore the beauty of being alive by investigating the things we say to inspire ourselves and each other: seize the day, treat yourself, you only live once. While these clichés are at best vague, at worst stupid, Riggle will help point us to what is valuable and enriching about them.
