Do you enjoy thinking about what others say as much as they enjoy arguing their own views?
The Langara College Department of Philosophy invites you to attend Philosophers’ Jam, a forum for the expression of provocative ideas. This dialogue series is intended for people who want to discuss ideas but whose busy lives prevent them from signing up for a credit course.
Philosophers’ Jams are free and open to all Langara faculty, staff, and students, as well as anyone in the Vancouver community. Bring a friend or colleague and see you at the next Jam session!
How Stoicism Can Be Useful Today
Thursday, October 25
7:00 pm–9:00 pm
A Building, Employee Lounge
Stoicism is a millennia-old philosophy, but one that retained its appeal since it began. I wish to look how it might help people through the troubles of our time.
Alex Boston is a philosopher at Langara College, with interests in ethics, free will, and ancient philosophy. Stoicism has proven useful in surviving the raising of his toddler and cat.
