Philosophers Café meets May 11

The Philosophers Café meets from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, May 11, 2017 at St. Brendan’s Inn (234 S. Washington Street, Green Bay) to discuss “Does Reality come in Degrees.” Associate Prof. Christopher Martin (Philosophy and Humanistic Studies) will moderate the discussion. “Plato famously posited in addition to the ever-changing particulars that surround us a realm of eternal entities that are the true objects of knowledge and causes of particulars. Aristotle demurred, preferring to privilege the reality of objects around us and championing reality as something that is fundamentally basic and uniform. Are entities merely real or not real, or might reality come in degrees? What sense if any can we make of the notion that some things are ‘more real’ than others, and is there any benefit to how we understand the world in doing so?” Learn more about the upcoming event.
