Philosophy Walk: “Justice as Fairness: Exploring & Applying the Ideas of Rawls”

Helena Valley Reservoir Helena, MT

In this walk we'll be exploring the the idea of justice through the lens of equity and fairness -- two critical features of the late John Rawls' theory of justice. While a summary of Rawls' views, including the dynamics of his arguments and its implications will be discussed at the outset, the bulk of this walk will be spent exploring, working out, expanding upon, and applying Rawls' views in a "hands-on" way to past and contemporary issues.

Community Workshop: “Thinking About Place”

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

Gertrude Stein’s “there is no there there” has been used as a description for placeless spaces. But what exactly is “place”? There are lots of ways to think about it. In this workshop led by Dennis McCahon we’ll be thinking about “place” in terms of our urban outdoors. When we get that Helena “sense of place” out there, what’s going on? What are we sensing? Is it urban design — deliberate “place-making” on somebody’s part? Is it a lucky accident? Something else? If it’s a mix of those, what’s the ratio? When can urban design be called “place-making” at all? This is an unruly bunch of questions. Unruly questions, though, can be fun, and even if they don’t lead to a hard-set definition, they can, in the case of Helena’s urban outdoors, lead to something useful — a shared, or at least better clarified and articulated vision and use of a Helena-specific, vocabulary and frame of reference — a basis, maybe, for practical understanding.
