Next Philosopher’s Cafe on Wednesday, May 8

The next Philosopher’s Cafe (as well as Death Cafe) will be taking place on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at St. Brendan’s Inn in Green Bay. The seventeenth-century philosopher La Rouchefoucauld claimed that one can no more look steadily at death than he can the sun. And yet, people do die, and people grieve. Join organizers for a discussion with UW-Green Bay Prof. Illene Cupit (Human Development, Psychology) and a scholar in the emerging filed of “Thanatology,” the study of death and dying. Is grief a universal phenomenon? Is it necessary to grieve, and if so, is it preferable to get psycho pharmaceutical or psychotherapeutic help? These are some of the issues to be discussed in this Philosophers’ Cafe (or “Death Cafe”).

Next Philosophers’ Café is Wednesday, April 10

The next Philosophers’ Café, “Road Trip! Finding Democracy and the American Dream on the Road,” will be taking place on Wednesday, April 10, 2019 at 7 p.m. at St. Brendan’s Inn in Green Bay. Associate Prof. Eric Morgan (Democracy and Justice Studies) will be acting as the moderator. The event is always free and open to the public.

About this Philosophers’ Café: “Throughout the nation’s history Americans have always loved to be on the move, embracing a pioneering spirit that is embedded deep within the country’s democratic ideals of opportunity and expansion, of dreams and reinvention. With the widespread availability of cars and the establishment of a vast highway system by the mid-20th century, many Americans had more opportunities than ever before to explore their nation and to reinvent themselves, taking untraveled roads to seek out their own American dreams. Why has the road mattered so much to Americans as they have sought to find and define themselves amidst eras of expansion, depression, war, turbulence and peace? Bring along your favorite road trip novel, film, song or, best of all, personal road trip memory.”
