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.

How Did We Get Here?: Social Contract

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

The theory of a “social contract” plays a crucial role in American history & in much of contemporary political theory. In this evening’s program led by community philosopher David Nowakowski, we’ll trace the main currents of this idea from early incarnations in the work of Hobbes, Locke, and Rousseau, through influential 20th-century philosophers like Rawls, to the present. We’ll examine how historical circumstances shaped each thinker’s account & reflect on how those continue to reverberate in the present. Learn more & RSVP here!

Philosophy Walk: On Travel

Spring Meadow Lake 2715 Country Club Drive, Helena, MT, United States

According to urban legend, some famous novelist (maybe Tolstoy or Dostoyevski?) once quipped that there are only two stories: “A stranger comes to town” and “Someone goes on a journey.” Regardless of who first said it, there’s something to the notion that travelling is essential, both to the ways we live, and to the stories we tell to help make sense of those lives. In this walk, we’ll explore some of the ways that travel can be a space of encounter, transformation, and meaning. Learn more & RSVP here!
