Community Philosophy Circle “What is Intelligence?”


Paul Bodin and Caroline Lundquist will be co-facilitating the fifth in a series of Community Philosophy Circles What is Intelligence? scheduled to start promptly at 6:00pm on Wednesday November 15 in the Downtown Eugene Public Library.

Community members of all ages are invited to come together to explore the nature of intelligence in a public discussion led by high school students from A3, the Academy of Arts and Academics.

Here are some of the questions that will be explored …
• What counts as intelligence? Are there multiple intelligences?
• Is intelligence something we’re born with? Or is it developed or learned?
• Can other species besides humans be intelligent? What about artificial intelligence?
• How should we measure intelligence?

Come to the Eugene Downtown Library and be a part of this unique youth-led discussion.

All ages are welcome, and all public philosophy events are free.

For more information, contact Paul Bodin or Caroline Lundquist.

Community Philosophy Circle: “What Is Art?”

Paul Bodin and Caroline Lundquist will be co-facilitating the fourth in a series of Community Philosophy Circles “What Is Art”, scheduled to start promptly at 6:00pm on Tuesday October 24 in the Downtown Eugene Public Library.

The discussion will include the importance of creative expression in our personal lives, and the collective experience of being human through art in all of its forms. The lyrics of a popular song can move us deeply. A choreographed dance can push the boundaries of balance and symmetry. An editorial cartoon can make us laugh at hypocrisy. A child’s splash of color and texture can transcend the limitations of words. Art in its many expressive forms raises important philosophical questions. Where does inspiration come from? Is our relationship to the arts something uniquely human? Are songbirds and babbling brooks artists in their own way? Why do some artistic experiences possess the ability to transport or transform us, while others leave us unmoved? Are the arts in danger of being corrupted by marketing, advertising, and social media?

All ages are welcome, and all public philosophy events are free.

For more information, contact Paul Bodin or Caroline Lundquist.
