Philosophy Workshop Series: “What is Philosophy?” (The Basics)

Virtual Event

To celebrate the new year, we’ll kick off our 2021 workshop series by going back to the beginning. What is philosophy? What does it involve, what does it do, and why should we care? For this first workshop, we’ll survey several approaches to the question, “What is philosophy?”, each of which will raise its own further questions for reflection and discussion. We’ll also take a quick tour of the major areas or divisions of philosophy, as they developed in Greece, India, and elsewhere, which will lay the groundwork for more detailed study of each of them, in the remaining parts of this workshop series, and beyond.

Philosophy Workshop: “Knowing as Practice”

Virtual Event

Philosophers sometimes treat knowledge as something we have when we’re seated comfortably in a proverbial or literal armchair. Yet at the very least, this seems to leave out a significant aspect of our humanity: the fact that we are embodied creatures, who actively and dynamically interact with the things that we think about and know. In this workshop led by philosophers Hila Tzipora Chase & David Nowakowski, we’ll look directly at ways of experiencing, of encountering, and of knowing that involve the full, embodied human being.
