Speaker: Patrick Breysse (Ph.D. Johns Hopkins University Department of Physics and Astronomy), Postdoctoral Fellow studying cosmology at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics.

In the process, I’ll explain some of how astronomers study the history of the universe, and how telescopes are secretly time machines that let us look directly into the distant past. I’ll also talk about some of the great mysteries that remain in this story, and how we’re working in Toronto and elsewhere to solve them."

Philosophy Book Discussion August 4, Sunday, 2019, 3pm-5pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Richard Bach: Jonathan Livingston Seagull. Hosted by Oz.
Location: Axis Cafe, 3048 Dundas St West, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach is an allegorical tale in novella form about a seagull learning about life and flight, and a homily about self-perfection. Bach wrote it as a series of short stories that were published in Flying magazine in the late 1960s. It was first published in book form in 1970, and by the end of 1972 over a million copies were in print. In 1972 and 1973, the book topped the Publishers Weekly list of bestselling novels in the United States.
Flight is the metaphor that makes the story soar. Ultimately the fable is about the importance of seeking a higher purpose in life, even if your flock, tribe, or neighbourhood finds the ambition threatening. By not compromising his higher vision, Jonathan gets the ultimate pay-off: transcendence. In the end, he learns the meaning of love and kindness.
*** We'll be discussing Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach at this meetup. Please have the novella read in advance (about 120 pages). The book can be viewed and downloaded in various formats HERE - https://b-ok.cc/s/?q=Richard+Bach+Jonathan+Livingston+Seagull
*** NOTE: This event is organized by the Toronto Book Club and Discussion Group (https://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Book-Club-and-Discussion-Group/) and co-hosted with the Toronto Philosophy Meetup.
If you'd like to put on your own philosophy-related event or discussion with the Toronto Philosophy Meetup, please contact us."

Philosophy Book Discussion August 7, Wednesday, 2019, 4pm-7pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Corporate Social Responsibility in the Era of A.I. (Centre for Ethics Event).
Location: Room 200, Larkin Building, University of Toronto, 15 Devonshire Place, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "The new Artificial Intelligence-powered social technology economy has disrupted local and global markets with bewildering speed. From hoteling to online dating to urban transportation, GPS-enabled location-based apps like Uber, Facebook, Amazon, and Airbnb have broken down conventional axes of economic regulation, social interaction, and commercial power. Why and how must we reimagine the normative and practical foundations of corporate social responsibility and business ethics? Current approaches such as the stockholder and stakeholder theory of corporate social responsibility are vague, abstract, indeterminate, and have little relevance to the modern economy. To move past this impasse, this lecture, which is based on a forthcoming book entitled The New Business Ethics (Routledge, 2019), argues we must reimagine corporate social responsibility in five critical ways: as a practical process of decision-making and accountability that exists to foster and maintain trust in enterprise; as a dynamic and process-relational system of interconnected institutions and agents; as a discourse ethics concerned with articulating a new universal pragmatics; as an actor-centric model of market-state relations; and as a new social constitution of the digital economy grounded in the principles of responsibility, transparency, and accountability. Michael Motala http://www.michaelmotala.com/ University of Toronto Political Science
Biography: Michael Motala is an Ethics of Artificial Intelligence Graduate Research Fellow at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Ethics, and a PhD student studying political science. Michael’s research interests lie at the intersection of law, economics, political science, and pragmatist moral philosophy. He holds degrees from Columbia University, Osgoode Hall Law School, the London School of Economics and Political Science, and the University of Toronto’s Trinity College.
*** NOTE: This is a talk and Q&A presented by the University of Toronto's Centre for Ethics that is open to the public. The Toronto Philosophy Meetup is not affiliated with the Centre although some of us will be in attendance. Sometimes we look for each other after the event for further discussion about the topic."

What do us Stoics do when we are an iPhone away from being cast into the culture war?
In this month's Philosophy Cafe we'll explore the culture war and how to be a Stoic during it. Recommended listening - https://anchor.fm/intellectualexplorersclub/episodes/Alfsvoid---Being-Stoic-in-the-Culture-War-e3e6fl Recommend reading - https://medium.com/s/world-wide-wtf/memetic-tribes-and-culture-war-2-0-14705c43f6bb

Quote: "What is the nature of perception? Is the human mind a blank slate, as empiricists believe? Or is there an inherent, a priori structure to our consciousness? Edmund Husserl, the "father of phenomenology", favours the second answer. In this meet-up we take a closer look at his transcendental phenomenology, the movement that shaped Continental philosophy in the 20th century. Husserl argues that science and technology are suffering from a meaning crisis: they have lost their roots in lived human experience and lack significance for human life. He goes on to show us how we can bring science back in touch with the human life-world. The key is a philosophical device that Husserl calls the "phenomenological epoché". It involves bracketing a region of experience to reveal its deeper (often hidden) roots. The epoché proceeds in two steps. First, it leads us back from the mathematical-formal objectivity of science to the so-called straightforward (or natural) attitude: the ordinary, everyday consciousness of our existence in the world. Second, the epoché brackets this straightforward attitude to arrive at consciousness in its purity, that is, the transcendental subject. This perspective reveals anything but an empiricist blank slate. It shows human consciousness to have a rich a priori structure through which our experience is originally constituted. This structure includes: the thinking subject and the intentional acts of thought; the intuited correlates of those acts (i.e. the objects of experience); horizons of meaning that contextualize our perception; and modes of inter-subjectivity (empathy) that relate us to other people and the social world.
Some questions we'll discuss: Is there really a meaning crisis in science and technology and what does this crisis look like in our world today? Can we accept Husserl's rationalism/teleology as an answer to this meaning crisis? What is the relationship between philosophy and history? Is it fair to call Husserl a rationalist in the traditional sense?Is phenomenology perhaps something different from both rationalism and empiricism? It is hard to overstate Husserl's impact on contemporary philosophy. His Transcendental Phenomenology is the main precursor to Existentialism in the 20th century, while exerting influence on analytic philosophy as well.
READINGS We'll read §§ 33-41 from Husserl's last book, The Crisis of European Sciences and Transcendental Phenomenology, available here: https://b-ok.cc/book/785580/1b70ae
For a background on the meaning crisis in science, see §§ 1 and 2.

She eventually became a pioneer of canopy science, and created a system of forest walkways that now extends around the world. She's been hailed as "Einstein of the Treetops," but is better known by the nickname, Canopy Meg.

Philosophy Book Discussion August 18, Sunday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Foucault and Deleuze on Power.
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "In "The Subject and Power" (1982) Michel Foucault summarizes his previous work on the human subject and the manner and extent to which we are determined by power structures. Like other French philosophers of his time (e.g., Althusser), Foucault rejects the naive humanist notion of a free and rational subject for a view of the self as a being embedded in a system of power relations. At the base of Foucault's view in "The Subject and Power" is the assumption that power is not wielded through oppression but rather through the manufacturing of individuals whose identifications and actions are inscribed in a social order whose norms and codes of behaviour are totalized in advance. Foucault notes the double meaning of "subject" -- both a self-aware topic of investigation, and something which is acted upon and subjugated -- and intertwines these two meanings in his analysis of the relations between subjectivity, knowledge, and power. ... In his 1990 essay "Postscript on the Societies of Control", Deleuze builds on Foucault's notion of the society of discipline to argue that society is undergoing a shift in structure and mechanisms of control. Where societies of discipline were characterized by discrete physical enclosures (such as schools, factories, prisons, office buildings, etc.), institutions and technologies introduced since World War II have dissolved the boundaries between these enclosures. As a result, social coercion and discipline have moved into the lives of individuals considered as "masses, samples, data, markets, or 'banks'." The mechanisms of modern societies of control are described as continuous, following and tracking individuals throughout their existence via transaction records, mobile location tracking, and other personally identifiable information. ⟗⟗⟗ For this meeting we'll be reading both Foucault's The Subject and Power [19 pages] and Deleuze's Postscript on the Societies of Control [5 pages] please have both read in advance they are quite short. You can download Foucault's The Subject and Power HERE: https://booksc.xyz/book/11581544/e1de77 You can download Deleuze's Postscript on the Societies of Control HERE: https://cidadeinseguranca.files.wordpress.com/2012/02/deleuze_control.pdf Supplementary information on the authors can be found here: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/deleuze/ | https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/foucault/ Short video on Deleuze's Societies of Control by Cuck Philosophy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B_i8_WuyqAY."

Looking Ahead...

Philosophy Book Discussion September 1, Sunday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Thomas Nagel: The View From Nowhere (Week 4: Knowledge).
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "Human beings have the unique ability to view the world in a detached way. We can think about the world in terms that transcend our own experience or interest, and consider the world from a vantage point that is, in Nagel's words, "nowhere in particular." At the same time, each of us is a particular person in a particular place, each with his own "personal" view of the world, a view that we can recognize as just one aspect of the whole. How do we reconcile these two standpoints — intellectually, morally, and practically? To what extent are they irreconcilable, and to what extent can they be integrated? Thomas Nagel's ambitious and lively book tackles this fundamental issue, arguing that our divided subjective/objective nature is the root of a whole range of philosophical problems, touching, as it does, every aspect of human life. He deals with its manifestations in such fields of philosophy as the mind-body problem, personal identity, knowledge and skepticism, thought and reality, free will, ethics, the relation between moral and other values, the meaning of life, and death. Excessive objectification has been a malady of recent philosophy, claims Nagel, leading to implausible forms of reductionism in the philosophy of mind and elsewhere. The solution is not to inhibit the objectifying impulse, but to insist that it learn to live alongside the internal perspectives that cannot be either discarded or objectified. Reconciliation between the two standpoints is, according to Nagel, not always possible.
*** We are continuing our series on Thomas Nagel's book The View From Nowhere (1986). Nagel is one of the most respected analytic philosophers of the past forty years. The book is a systematic presentation of his approach to some basic problems in philosophy.
We are discussing the entire book over 10 meetups. The reading plan is as follows: Week 1 - "Chapter I. Introduction" and "Chapter II. Mind" Week 2 - "Chapter III. Mind and Body" Week 3 - "Chapter IV. The Objective Self" Week 4 (CURRENT) - "Chapter V. Knowledge" Week 5 - "Chapter VI. Thought and Reality" Week 6 - "Chapter VII. Freedom" Week 7 - "Chapter VIII. Value" Week 8 - "Chapter IX. Ethics" Week 9 - "Chapter X. Living Right and Living Well" Week 10 - "Chapter XI. Birth, Death, and the Meaning of Life"
"Chapter V. Knowledge", our reading this week, covers the following topics: — 1. Skepticism — 2. Anti-skepticism — 3. Self-transcendence — 4. Evolutionary Epistemology — 5. Rationalism — 6. Double Vision
Please have the text read in advance of our discussion — the reading for each week is about 20 to 30 pages. A copy of the book can be viewed and downloaded HERE: https://b-ok.cc/book/2762261/a3d874."

Philosophy Book Discussion September 13, Friday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - Viktor Frankl: Man's Search for Meaning.
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "Man's Search for Meaning is the chilling yet inspirational story of Viktor Frankl's struggle to hold on to hope during the unspeakable horrors of his years as a prisoner in Nazi concentration camps. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl laboured in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of those he treated in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory — known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning") — holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.
*** This meetup is dedicated to discussing Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning. Please have the book read in advance (about 170 pages). The book can be viewed and downloaded in pdf format HERE - https://b-ok.cc/book/2176040/e78cbf (See the following for some background on the author: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viktor_Frankl)."

Throughout our venue you will find all kinds of fantastic and fun areas of interest, so take your time to explore them all!
BunFest is geared specifically towards rabbits that are house pets. BunFest does not endorse, support or recommend the breeding or showing of rabbits. Our event and information focuses on keeping your rabbit happy and healthy in a loving indoor home environment – we believe rabbits deserve to be part of the family!

- Can I bring my bunny? Of course! There are lots of fun things for you to do with your bunny at BunFest, including BunSpa, Bunny Cafe & Lounge and Glamour Shots, however, please take a few things into consideration. While we would love to see you and your rabbit at BunFest, please keep in mind that this event can be crowded, noisy and stressful for some bunnies. No one knows your bunny as well as you do so if you think that BunFest might be too much for your rabbit to handle, please leave them at home. Make sure you pick up lots of bunny stuff to make it up to them! Please refer to our BunFest Rules for additional information.
- What is happening throughout the day? Onsite you will find the Rabbit Rescue Store (including RR merchandise and items for your bunny), Silent Auction, BunSpa, Glamour Shots, a Bunny Cafe & Lounge, Special Guests including animal rights groups, veterinarians, shelters and rescues, and Vendors selling bunny related items including jewlery, prints, paintings and much more! You can find a full list of our vendors here.

On the East side of Bayview Avenue, just North of Lawrence Avenue East, and just South of Post Road. Across the street from the Granite Club and North of Glendon College and Crescent School.

- Will there be bunnies available for adoption at BunFest? Yes! Rabbit Rescue will have adoptable rabbits at the Bunny Brigade area of BunFest. We will also have our Adoption Binder so you can look at all the rabbits looking for new forever homes. PLEASE NOTE: Rabbit Rescue rabbits will not be adopted out on BunFest day. Our Adoption Screening process does not allow for same-day adoptions, but you can fill out an application to adopt on BunFest day.
- ADOPTING ON BUNFEST DAY Many of our shelters participating in BunFest WILL have rabbits that you can adopt on BunFest day. A few local Toronto shelters will be onsite with adoptable rabbits who are looking for new, forever homes. If you are hoping to find a new friend at BunFest, please bring at least two pieces of government-issued I.D. and cash for the adoption fees. Adoption fees and screening processes vary by shelter/rescue and are at their sole discretion, so please come prepared. There is no ATM on-site.
- What sort of payment is accepted? We are able to accept cash and major credit cards at BunFest. Unfortunately we are NOT able to accept personal cheques or debit cards. There is NO ATM on-site, so please come prepared!
- Is there food available to eat? Yes! We will be having our BunFest Bake Sale inside the venue which will offer wonderful vegan sweet treats, as well as delicious hot and cold vegan food to purchase.
Every year Rabbit Rescue manages to save hundreds of rabbits and small pets (Hamsters, gerbils, hedgehogs, etc). We do not have a shelter and rely on the kindness of our many volunteers to foster rabbits in their own homes."
