October 2016 Philosophy Drive-In

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
  • Empiricism
  • 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!
