Coming up this Friday and Saturday, the Ronning Centre will host another in our series of Philosopher’s Cafes.
How Should We Rethink the Purpose of a Liberal Arts Education?
Friday morning, 9 April, 8:30 – 10 a.m. at Merchants Tea & Coffee House, 4857 50 Street, Camrose
We are pleased to have Ric Johnson, Vice Dean, Augustana Campus, animate the discussion on several questions: Is there any need for a non-specialist liberal arts education? What should we expect of it? Does it need radical revision in the face of the challenges unfolding in the 21st century?
Is it Possible to Find a Comfortable Place for Death in Our Approach to Life
David Goa, animator, this Saturday, 10 April, 1 – 3:30 PM, at Steeps, The Urban Tea House, 11116 Whyte (82nd) Avenue, Edmonton
Many argue that our time of crisis requires populations to decrease and the elaborate medico-technological measures to increase life span be given up. How do we bring our mortality and death within a comprehensive picture of what human life is about? Do we need to believe in immortality?
There is no fee to attend this event, and no registration is required.
