Our October Philosophy Drive-In was a blast! Our awesome group of philosophy & movie-lovers enjoyed tasty movie snacks and the 2009 historical drama Agora — a film centered around the famous female astronomer, philosophy and mathematics professor Hypatia of Alexandria during the decline of Greco-Roman polytheism & the Christianization of the Roman Empire.
Some of the things we explored during our post-film discussion included:
- Scientific reasoning
- Faith-based reasoning
- The relationship between science & religion
- The Ptolemaic & Heliocentric systems
- And more…
Read a synopsis of the film, some of the philosophical questions raised, and a brief overview of the religion-science relationship debate & epistemology here!
