How Did We Get Here?: Democracy

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

Is democracy new or old? Does it deserve the reverence that modern Western society has ascribed to it? In this evening's program, we'll look at the evolution of the modern concept of democracy, including how different groups approached practical matters. We'll trace their solutions to the present day & see how those solutions continue to shape the discourse of the modern world. We'll also reflect on current challenges to "democracy" and how members of the community can put theory into practice to keep democracy healthy. Learn more & RSVP here!

Philosophy Walk: On Regret

Beattie Street Trailhead Beattie Street Trailhead, Mount Ascension Park, MT, United States

We’ve all had the experience of regretting a choice, an action, or a missed opportunity. Most of us have done things that we knew we’d regret, but we did them anyway. In this philosophy walk, we’ll be doing some conceptual analysis of the notion of regret. We'll consider questions like: What do we mean by “regret”? Is it more of a judgment or intellectual activity, or is it more of an emotion, feeling, or passion? What's the role of regret in human life? And more. We'll draw from ancient thinkers like Aristotle and Seneca, and from some luminaries of English literature like Chaucer and Shakespeare and more! Learn more & RSVP here!

Philosophy Walk: On Courage

S. Raleigh St. & Hillsdale St. Intersection of S. Raleigh St. & Hillsdale St., Helena, United States

Most of us are inclined to praise courage in a variety of contexts, from soldiers and first responders going boldly into danger of death; to the moral courage of speaking out, at great personal cost, in the face of social injustice; to confidently facing the dangers and uncertainties of daily life. But taken as whole, what is courage? In this walk, we’ll unite conceptual analysis — figuring out what courage is, and what its value is — with practical reflection on cultivating courage as part of a flourishing human life.
