Philosophy as Therapy?

9 October | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

All welcome | Free to attend | First come, first served at the door

 

There is a rich tradition of claiming therapeutic powers for philosophy, but if philosophy is the love of wisdom, is ignorance bliss? Is philosophy only about sharp arguments and subtle distinctions, or can it help us find better ways to live? Join us as we discuss whether thinking philosophically can be a form of self-help.
