On the Use of Philosophy in Our Lives – FREE Intro Salon for The Story of Philosophy series
Join London-based ii Hosts Flick Hardingham and Irene JK as they explore the history and story of philosophy across an 11-month reading series starting on March 28. We’ll survey the field through the lens of Will Durant’s seminal The Story of Philosophy.
By the end of this free introductory Salon you’ll be able to sign up for this new series that dives right into the plot and theme of philosophy, the queen of the sciences. Come join us!
In this Salon, we will enquire about the use of philosophy. How did it all start? Why is it important? Philosophy is known to provide the space to question, challenge, and explore the deeper aspects of lives, societies and our world. Does it really make a difference? Each of us are on our own path seeking wisdom and meaning. How far are you in your journey?
As science progresses with breakneck speed, philosophy is the pause that we might all need. We will spend the evening taking that pause to think, reflect and enquire its relevance in our lives. In the commune of fellow curiosity explorers, we will spend a light-hearted evening discussing our own journeys, interests, the book club and the use of philosophy.
Salons are intellectual and free flowing conversations facilitated by the hosts. Each participant is encouraged to share their views and thoughts freely. The salons are not recorded. The participants will receive the zoom link before the salon.
We look forward to seeing you there.
