Those of you close enough to attend events at Columbia University in New York have another great opportunity for a Socratic conversation with Ron Gross at 3:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 27 on the Columbia campus at 120th Street and Broadway. An invitation, including the exact address/location, is available by RSVPing to Ron at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's what the conversation will cover (and it is a conversation not a lecture/class/workshop!):
- How do you feel about the state of morality in the U.S. today?
- What inspires you to live morally? (religion? reason? tradition? conscience? something else?)
- Has "me" eclipsed "we?" Has selfishness run amok?
- How is advocacy of living morally being use and/or mis-used by the political left and/or the political right?
- What is the relation between living morally and happiness?
Ron will have a display of relevant books, and light refreshments.
