Mar 7 – Philosophers’ Jam

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 the 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!

Old Solutions to New Problems: Knowledge, Skepticism, and Modern Media
Selman Halabi
(Columbia College)

Thursday, March 7
7:00 pm–9:00 pm
A Building, Employee Lounge

We will take a brief, selective tour through the history of philosophy to identify what I believe to be its most fundamental question – How do our minds relate to the world? Answering this question matters today as much as it did in Plato’s day. I will attempt to illustrate this issue’s importance by applying it to the media we consume.

Selman Halabi is a philosophy instructor at Columbia College.
