Games, Sports, & Philosophy – Pop Culture & Philosophy

February 13 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MST

Both Western philosophy and the Olympic style sport originated in Ancient Greece. Now, Philosophy of Sport is a recognized part of modern studies. What is the nature of sport? Why are human beings drawn to games and competition? Do sports make us better or is there a harmful aspect to games? Join us as we consider these questions and more while watching a few clips to get us started. Cost: $4.00 resident, $5.00 non-resident. Call 303-651-8411 to register and pay in advance, or bring exact change with you to the door.This discussion series is based on the belief that philosophy can and should be practiced by anyone, anywhere! Using the Geek Philosophy method created by Kelly Cowling and Robyn Bosica, film and television clips serve as inspiration for fascinating conversations. Discussions are led by trained facilitators from Grey Havens Philosophy, a local non-profit and part of the Philosophy Learning and Teaching Organization. All ages welcome- bring your kids and grandkids! Get ready #ToBoldlyThink.
