Please join us for our August Philosophy Walk on Sunday, August 20th from 9am-11am. Special guest speaker/philosopher-on-trail, Carroll College student Jacob MacDuff, will explore a critical & very timely topic — i.e., the democratic institution.
Topic: The Fracturing of Democracy
- An investigation into Machiavelli’s theory of Democratic decline (as expressed in The Prince)
- A critique of American political life in the context of Machiavellian thought, and
- A discussion of how individuals and communities can protect the people’s power in a democratic society
Location: Our group will meet at the Dump Gulch trailhead sign.
Other: $5 suggested donation on the day of the walk
