Community Philosophy Circle: Understanding Ourselves Through the Stories We Tell

The eighth Community Philosophy Circle takes place on Thursday June 6th at 6:00pm in the Downtown Eugene Public Library.

In this Community Philosophy Circle, reflect on questions including: Besides being rational animals, are we also storytelling animals? Without stories we tell ourselves and others, would there be anything meaningful left of us? How are our relationships shaped by our stories about “how we met,” “what we’ve been through,” and “that time when”? Is history just a collection of stories, more like fiction than fact? How do the stories we tell about history shape our cultural identities? Are fictional stories really “untrue”? What makes some fictional stories feel especially “true”? What roles do stories play in our moral lives? Can some lessons be learned best through a story? What stories do today’s children need to hear?
