Philosophers' Corner

Winter/Spring 2021 Session

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.

Zoom Sessions

Because of social distancing requirements due to the pandemic, Philosphers' Corners will not be held in person at any of our usual three locations this spring.  Instead they will be held online as Zoom meetings.  Please register for the free sessions as you would for a TALK course (see the Course Registration tab).   The sessions will be held the first Thursday of the month at 11:00am and will last a maximum of 90 mintues.
