VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB: Philosophy

 
Philosophy Book Club

The Lahaska Bookshop invites you to join engaging discussions about philosophy and philosophers. The group meets in-person on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at the Lahaska Bookshop for 2 hours at 12 Noon! Members of the club also meet via Zoom - also at noon! - on the other Tuesdays for an ongoing discussion. The discussions are guided by Jonathan Matas who has 35 years of experience teaching philosophy to adult students.

To be added to the group's contact list send an email request via CentralBucksPhilosophers@gmail.com

The club's next book is Katherine Hawley's Trust.

Trust is indispensable to our everyday lives, yet it can be dangerous. Without trusting others, we cannot function in society, or even stay alive for very long, but being overly trustfull can leave us open to exploitation and abuse. And not only is trust pragmatic, but it also has a moral dimension: trustworthiness is a virtue, and well-placed trust benefits us all. In this Very Short Introduction, philosopher Katherine Hawley explores the key ideas about trust and distrust.

GENERAL EVENT NOTES

VIRTUAL EVENTS
We host our virtual author events on CrowdCast. The majority of our events are free to view unless otherwise noted and archived on our YouTube channel. Virtual events are easy to attend! Viewers do not have to worry about being on camera or having access to a microphone and have the ability to chat with the authors through live chat and ask questions through CrowdCast during the event by typing them into the Q&A field. Visit our CrowdCast page to learn more>>.

WAITING IN LINE
At some of our well-attended or off-site ticketed events, you can expect to stand in line for upwards of two hours and sometimes longer. If you have an issue that prevents you from standing in line for that length of time, please contact us immediately so that we can better accommodate you at the event.
