First Meeting of 2012: Feb 6th

Happy new year, lovers of wisdom. We’re off to a late start this quarter, but as they say, “Better late than never!”

We have meetings scheduled now for the winter quarter. Mondays from 2pm to 4pm is when we’ll meet, starting with this Monday, February 6th. 

HSS 8025–Philosophy Department Library

The Topic: What’s the use of Philosophy? 

Questions to think about:

Should non-philosophers care about philosophy? Why?

What sort of knowledge, if any, can we gain from philosophical investigation?

Why are philosophical questions important? Which ones?
