This Friday we will be discussing Westworld! No prior knowledge of the series discussed or philosophy experience required.

Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park — which is looked after by robotic “hosts” — allows its visitors to live out their fantasies through artificial consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged. “Westworld” is based on the 1973 Michael Crichton movie of the same name and features an all-star cast.

Long-time fans and newcomers are welcome to join! This discussion may include spoilers for the entire series. We’ll be watching 2-3 clips and discussing as a group. Participation encouraged, but not required!

Grey Havens is LGBTQ+ friendly, and we encourage a diversity of experiences, perspectives, and ideas in our discussions.

Ages 14+ (younger folks are welcome with a parent or guardian)

No philosophy experience necessary.

As part of the Grey Havens Philosophy Ethics Initiative, we will be exploring the most interesting ethical issues raised by our favorite fandoms.

Grey Havens Philosophy is a Philosophy for Children and Communities (P4C) nonprofit based in Longmont, Colorado. For more information find us at greyhavensgroup.org
