Philosophy Walk: “Three Lives”

Mount Helena Trailhead Helena, MT

Philosophical and spiritual texts from India, like the Bhagavad Gita, often present a choice — or even a conflict — between three lives, or three different ways that we humans might organize and structure our lives. We see the life of action, focused on “getting stuff done,” particularly in the political, economic, or domestic realms. We find the life of knowledge, centered on wisdom and understanding. And we encounter the life of devotion, based in love. We’ll use a few short selections from important philosophical texts, East and West, as a springboard for understanding each life, both on its own terms, and in conflict or dialogue with the others.

Philosophy Workshop: “Myth in Philosophy”

Reeder's Alley Interpretive & Convention Center 101 Reeder's Alley, Helena, MT

This workshop will explore the role of myth within philosophy, the life dedicated to the pursuit of wisdom. What kinds of myths are there? (We'll consider specific examples of myths: both the traditional Greek myths which Plato and his tradition examined, and myths from other times and places). When & how can myths be used effectively and appropriately? What does it mean to engage with myth in a specifically philosophical mode? How do mythic modes of understanding enrich, complement, or complete other ways of thinking and knowing, like the logical or analytical? Learn more & RSVP here.

How Did We Get Here?: Species

Reeder's Alley Interpretive & Convention Center 101 Reeder's Alley, Helena, MT

In this installment of “How Did We Get Here?”, we’ll consider the idea of “species,” from Plato and Aristotle, through the Middle Ages, to Charles Darwin (of course!), and down to the present. Along the way, we’ll gain some useful insights into the role of ideas and abstraction in western scientific thought, reflect on the search for stability in a changing world, as a unifying thread from Plato to Darwin, and beyond, and cultivate a deeper appreciation for the ways that we, and our predecessors, strive to classify and categorize — both in the natural world, and in human society and culture.
