In this final installment of our Loss & Legacy series we’ll reflect upon our military and the ways in which we think about ancestors in service, as prompted by the WW1 memorial film “They Shall Not Grow Old.” Our film & community conversation will be held on Thursday, November 2nd in the evening in Reeder’s Alley Convention Center and facilitated by community philosopher David Nowakowski. Free and open to all members of the community. Learn more & RSVP here!
In this installment of our Loss & Legacy series, we consider different kinds of ancestry and lineage, extending beyond just family ties, to include our teachers and predecessors in the arts we practice, in our professional lives, and in our nation or other groups and organizations of which we’re a part. As philosophers, we’ll consider what common/shared principles coherently underwrite and/or unify our understanding of these and ask how, based on this, might we think about and act toward all of our various ancestors appropriately. Our symposium will be held on Thursday, October 19th at The Helena Avenue Theater and feature guests panelists Bill Milton, Ellen Baumler & Daniel Gardner, and facilitator David Nowakowski.

A 2021 Vernon Press anthology series edited by Stephen Kekoa Miller featuring eight chapters about doing philosophy in innovative ways, both in the schools and the community at large. In our chapter, “Philosophy In & By the Community,” we explore how Merlin CCC — with the help & support of community — has taken shape in interesting, delightful, and unexpected ways. In the process, we discuss our approach to philosophy, the kind of work we do, and some of its characteristics…as well as the significance & beauty of community & place. Learn more here!
