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.

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
