Philosophy Book Discussion December 7, 2019, Saturday, 4pm-7pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - Philosophy of tragedy: Aquinas' Summa and Dante's Comedy.
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "No other works express the mind of Medieval Europe like Aquinas’ Summa Theologica and Dante’s Divine Comedy. They convey the theological-poetic vision of a God-centred universe and the human hope of grasping the wisdom and beauty of its creator. We’ll aim to understand this vision by reading several sections of the Summa and the Comedy. We'll ask about the meaning of comedy (both divine and human) and its relation to the classical Greek tragedy of Oedipus.
OVERVIEW In the Summa Thomas Aquinas reconciles the newly recovered works of Aristotle with the theology of the Christian West. His cosmos is a self-contained unity where all things proceed from and return to God as their first and final cause. The immortal soul, dependent on God’s grace, reaches up towards heaven through the exercise of intellect and virtue. Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy is often called “the Summa in verse”. The poet ventures into the darkness of Inferno, passing the famous inscription “Abandon all hope ye who enter here.” Guided by human reason (symbolized by the poet Virgil) he tells of the sufferings of hell and the cleansing of Purgatory. Divine knowledge (symbolized by Dante's deceased love Beatrice) leads him in the ascent to Paradise and the beatific vision of the Divine essence. Some questions we'll address: What is the meaning of comedy and how is the human distinct from the Divine? What is the place of tragedy in Christianity? Can it be equated with sin and the eternal damnation of Inferno? Is there a Christian sense of fate, so decisive in the story of Oedipus? We'll aim to compare the classical and medieval worlds to understand the evolution of the European spirit. The Summa and the Comedy are among the most influential works of Western literature. Controversial for its time, the Summa set the stage for the Renaissance by uniting Aristotelian naturalism with the Christian view of God, the soul and the afterlife. Dante furthered this vision by affirming the importance of earthly affairs in addition to eternal salvation. Both works are key to Roman Catholicism and continue to shape the lives of believers through the influence of the Catholic Church. Thomistic philosophy was a target of Enlightenment attacks but has often been recovered since then. Neo-Thomism is alive and well in our time, as in the works of Jacques Maritain, Bernard Lonergan and Elizabeth Anscombe.
READINGS AND FILMS The Summa and the Comedy are monumental and there's only so much we can cover in a single meetup (especially with Oedipus in the picture too!). Please read as much as you can, and for the rest focus on the films.
A. Aquinas' Summa Theologica... We'll use an abridged selection, with total reading of about 30 pages. You can find all Summa readings at the following link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gthnPhLe56cO8RxacgpxWd1XclcuSpxzxrsDwogLR98/edit?usp=sharing
B. Dante's Divine Comedy... Films on the Divine Comedy: A silent film of Inferno with soundtrack by Tangerine Dream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shC-8LgcFf8 A guided tour of the Comedy: https://vimeo.com/164970200 Suggested reading: Inferno: Cantos I, III, IV, V and XXVI Purgatorio: Cantos I, III, IX and XVII Paradiso: Cantos I, VII, XXIII, XXXI, XXXIII
C. Sophocles' Oedipus the King... We have a choice of either film or text version - or both if you're able! Film versions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lSMs3CSyNQ (classic Hollywood) | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVMzKIEX8Kk (Pasolini - art film) | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3q3ghq5ReLs (BBC production) | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TonLOAkc1OY (masked drama in the classical Greek style) | Text of the play: https://b-ok.cc/book/837606/d672df "

Philosophy Book Discussion December 14, 2019, Saturday, 4pm-7pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - Philosophy and current affairs: What is Neoliberalism?
Location: First Canadian Place, 100 King St West, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "To many on the left neoliberalism is the root of our world's problems, from poverty and inequality to populist politics and climate change. To many on the right it is an empty word or, worse, a slur against an economic system that delivers freedom, democracy and prosperity. In this meet-up we'll cut through the rhetoric to get to the heart of what neoliberalism is - and isn't. We’ll read from two of its founders, Friedrich Hayek and Milton Friedman. And we’ll read contemporary criticisms of neoliberal ideas. Our ultimate goal is to ask what balance between government and free market forces is needed for a well-functioning society.
OVERVIEW “The first task is to demonstrate that government is the problem; that’s the easy task. The hard task is to understand why government is the problem.” Milton Friedman, neoliberal economist "The freedom that neoliberalism offers, which sounds so beguiling when expressed in general terms, turns out to mean freedom for the pike, not for the minnows." George Monbiot in the Guardian Neoliberalism was an answer to the welfare reforms of the 1930s, which included progressive taxation, wage controls and a social safety net. Early neoliberal thinkers, such as Friedrich Hayek and Ludwig von Mises, saw in these changes the looming threat of bureaucracy, collectivism and totalitarianism. Drawing on classical liberals like Adam Smith, they argued that society is most productive when government is small and individuals are free to compete in pursuit of self-interest. Milton Friedman and others developed these ideas into specific free-market policies. They emphasized private property and the rule of law, privatization and deregulation, low taxes and minimal government spending. In the 80s, the neoliberal program was put into practice by conservative leaders, notably Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan. In the next decades neoliberalism had a strong influence throughout the world, e.g. nation-wide privatization in Eastern Europe, market-oriented reforms in Latin America, austerity measures in many countries, etc. Critics of neoliberalism accuse it of being a deceptive ideology that enriches a small group (“the 1%”) at the expense of everyone else. They point out that productivity growth has slowed since the 1980s while the inequality gap has widened. Ordinary people are poorer and have fewer government services to rely on because of privatization and austerity. Environmental deregulation, they argue, has allowed business to abuse natural resources, worsening climate change. Likewise, deregulation of the banking sector led directly to the 2009 financial crisis. They claim neoliberalism is a "market fundamentalism" that privileges competition and deprives society of cooperation, democracy and collective planning. As a result, ordinary people are disempowered and are taking to the streets in protest, while many are attracted to nationalist and other extreme ideologies. Thus we have the rise of populist politics and a real threat to international peace.

Philosophy Book Discussion December 17, 2019, Tuesday, 5pm-7pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - Consciousness and the Philosophy of Signs.
Location: Ryerson University, RCC 204, 80 Gould St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "It is often thought that consciousness has a qualitative dimension that cannot be tracked by science. Recently, however, some have argued that this worry stems not from an elusive feature of the mind, but from the special nature of the concepts used to describe conscious states. I propose to draw on the neglected branch of the philosophy of signs or semiotics to develop a new take on this strategy. The term “semiotics” was introduced by John Locke in the modern period, its etymology is ancient Greek, and its theoretical underpinnings are medieval. Charles Sanders Peirce (1839-1914) made major advances in semiotics, so he can act as a pipeline for these forgotten ideas. Most philosophers know Peirce as the founder of American pragmatism, but few know that he also coined the term “qualia,” which is meant to capture the intrinsic feel of an experience. Since pragmatic verification and qualia are now seen as conflicting commitments, my work endeavors to understand how Peirce could (or thought he could) have it both ways. The key, I suggest, is to understand how humans can insert distinctions between features that are always bound. My goal will be to show how a better understanding of semiotics can move one of the liveliest debates in philosophy forward.
Marc Champagne, Professor, Department of Philosophy, Kwantlen University https://www.kpu.ca/arts/philosophy/faculty/marc-champagne https://marcchampagne.org/ https://philpeople.org/profiles/marc-champagne
About the Speaker: My research interests are varied, but most of my publications are in philosophy of mind, epistemology, and history of philosophy. I have just published a book with Springer titled Consciousness and the Philosophy of Signs, as part of their Studies in the History of Philosophy of Mind series. Much of my research explores the role of similarity-based mental representations like icons and diagrams in both conscious experience and logical reasoning. My methods are mainly analytic, but I occasionally venture into pragmatism and phenomenology, especially when these connect with results in current cognitive science. I was tasked with gathering the best literature on semiotics for Oxford's Annotated Bibliographies in Philosophy (edited by Duncan Pritchard). Before coming to Kwantlen, I taught at York University and Trent University. ***

Science History December 21, 2019, Saturday, 11:19pm EST (Sunday, December 22, 2019 at 04:19 UTC). December Solstice. Quote: "Solstice is an astronomical term regarding the position of the Sun in relation to the earth's equator. The name is derived from Latin solstitium (from sol: 'sun' and sistere: 'stand still'). During the year, the position of the sun seen from earth moves North and South. When it changes direction it stands still momentarily. So solstices are those moments of the year when the sun reaches its southernmost or northernmost position, at the Tropic of Capricorn or Tropic of Cancer. Solstice festivals were common (and held primacy) in most cultures of the ancient world." Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solstice

We will always tend to default to the Canadian/North American/Western experience when we discuss but we must also recognize there are few universal conditions and situations alter drastically across geographical and cultural borders. In recognition of this fact, this week we will be taking the time to speak about the state of Women in countries and cultures NOT our own. What are the cases? What are the challenges? What are our duties? What power do we have to effect change? We will discuss. Please join us."

Location: University of Toronto, Larkin Building, Room 200, 15 Devonshire Place, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "In the era of the so-called Anthropocene, we are more aware than ever that our relation to nature and to the non-human world must be transformed. That transformation can be understood from a strictly anthropocentric perspective, or it can be understood more comprehensively, incorporating the “perspective” of nature and the non-human. But what does it mean to do this? Recent discussions of non-human agency — the agency of “things” or of “actants” — have challenged the putative differences between human and non-human agency, particularly in the work of Jane Bennett and Bruno Latour. But their reliance on an insufficiently questioned picture of human agency continues to undermine their attempts to make sense of non-human agency, a task which has become all the more urgent as we come to grips with the implications of the Anthropocene. In this talk, I propose an alternative conception that better captures what is distinctive to both human and non-human agency.

Looking for something specific? Shoot us a message and we'll try out best to stock it for you if we don't already carry it! Check our full Product List on our website: https://bit.ly/2HVNtwZ .
To pass the Bare test, packaging should NOT be designed to end up in the dump. No, we don’t expect you to carry your olive oil and lentils home in the palms of your hands! What we mean by package-free is that our store is free from any single-use (or made-for-the-landfill) containers. Specifically, we do not carry or sell products that come in packaging that cannot be reused or composted.
Need a simpler option? Use one of our donated containers for free or participate in our container-lending program for a small, 100% refundable deposit."
