Philosophers' Corner

Winter/Sping 2023 Sessions

You don't have to be a philosopher to participate in these stimulating sessions. If you enjoy listening to people delve into the topics listed, providing their own and often controversial perspectives, or if you have insights or perspectives to offer, you will enjoy these Philosophers' Corner sessions. Some sessions will have a featured presenter to introduce the topic and all sessions are moderated to limit discussion to one speaker at a time and to ensure everyone gets a chance to speak.

We hope you will join us and discuss these thought provoking topics where listeners are as welcome as speakers.
