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.
