Philosophy Workshop: “On Empathy”

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

In this philosophy workshop led by student scholar fellow Julianna Breit, we'll explore our roles in empathy, questioning the aim of empathetic interactions, and analyzing what empathy looks like when it’s done well. After looking at the aesthetic foundations of empathy, we'll consider the interplay between savoring the other’s emotion and mitigating our own emotional overload. 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.
