LSS: Greg Scorzo - The art of thinking (discussion series)

Description: THE ART OF THINKING ABOUT GOD – GREG SCORCZO - SPRING 2019

The 'Art of Thinking' ABOUT GOD sessions will be run by philosopher Dr Greg Scorzo, editor of 'Culture on the Offensive' (https://www.cultureontheoffensive.com/).

In this session Dr Scorzo asks

"Is political polarisation a good thing?"

Whether the issues involve identity politics, free speech, Trump, Brexit, or Climate Change, contemporary politicos are at moral loggerheads with each other. There’s a sense in 2019 that our political opponents don’t merely disagree with us, but think we are something like bad people, doing evil things. Is this dangerous for society, or is it simply what happens whenever a society is going through necessary changes?

Followed by open exploration, discussion, debate and tea.

No experience of academic philosophy is needed. Each session stands alone – come to as many as you wish.

Admission £3 on the door, no booking necessary.
