CANCELED—Progress, Ethics, & Philosophy – Pop Culture & Philosophy

April 9 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm MDT

What is progress, how do we achieve it, and do the ends justify the means? Science fiction stories are rife with these questions, using space exploration and technological advancement to dive into deep ethical conflicts. Can we responsibly boldly go where no one has gone before? Can we achieve great heights without trampling on someone below? Join us as we watch a few clips to get us started.
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, pop culture clips and excerpts 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. As part of our nation-wide Ethics Initiative, all discussions this quarter will have a focus on ethics. Cost: $4.00 resident, $5.00 non-resident. Call 303-651-8411 to register and pay over the phone, or bring exact change with you.
