Community Philosophy Circle: “Identity and Connection in the Digital World”

Tuesday May 16
Downtown Eugene Public Library

Paul Bodin and Caroline Lundquist will be co-facilitating the third in a series of Community Philosophy Circles, scheduled to start promptly at 6:00pm on Tuesday May 16 in the Downtown Eugene Public Library.

Today, average Americans spend about half of their waking lives looking at screens, and for many of us, our digital lives are now just as much a part of our personal identities as the things we do in our “real” lives. Despite these new trends, most of us spend little enough time reflecting on the social and ethical implications of the digital technologies we use in our daily lives. Come explore the nature and meaning of life in the digital age at the third Community Philosophy Circle, led by Paul Bodin and Caroline Lundquist from the UO Philosophy Department.

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

For more information, contact Paul Bodin or Caroline Lundquist
