The problem refers to actual or possible situations that challenge the long-standing view that knowledge is justified true belief. In these situations, someone has a belief that is both true and well-supported by the evidence, yet which, according to almost everyone, fails to be knowledge."

History November 4, Sunday, 2am-1am. Daylight Saving Time Ends. At 2:00am Sunday morning, clocks will turn to 1:00am. Quote: Daylight saving time (DST), also known as summer time or daylight savings time, is a widely used system of adjusting the official local time forward, usually by one hour from its official standard time, for the summer months. This is intended to provide a better match between the hours of daylight and the active hours of work and school. The "saved" daylight is spent on evening activities which get more daylight, rather than being "wasted" while people sleep past dawn. DST is most commonly used in temperate regions, due to the considerable variation in the amount of daylight versus darkness across the seasons in those regions. Governments often tout it as an energy conservation measure, on the grounds that it allows more effective use of natural sunlight resource in summer time. Since there is less darkness in the "waking day", there is less use of electric lights. Some opponents reject this argument. In 2007[+] Daylight Saving Time begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. This pattern will be followed by all provinces which observe daylight saving time and each province has amended their legislation to reflect this change. Previously, Canada had observed Daylight Saving Time from the first Sunday in April until the last Sunday in October.

Philosophy Book Discussion November 8, Thursday, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: John Rawls: "The Good of Justice".
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "John Rawls is a giant of twentieth-century moral and political philosophy. We are continuing our read through his magnum opus A Theory of Justice (Revised Edition) with Chapter IX, titled "The Good of Justice". We've made it to the end of the book!
The chapter (on pages 450 to 516 of the Revised Edition) contains the following subsections: 78. Autonomy and Objectivity 79. The Idea of Social Union 80. The Problem of Envy 81. Envy and Equality 82. The Grounds for the Priority of Liberty 83. Happiness and Dominant Ends 84. Hedonism as a Method of Choice 85. The Unity of the Self 86. The Good of the Sense of Justice 87. Concluding Remarks on Justification
(NOTE: This final chapter of the book appears to rely on many of the concepts and arguments developed in the previous 450 pages. If you haven't read the previous chapters, you will probably want to consult, at the very least, the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy entry on John Rawls or the various entries on Rawls' major ideas before tackling this one. Since there will be much to discuss about this final chapter, we will not be spending a lot of time reviewing material from previous sections of the book at our discussion. The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy entry is here: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/rawls/)
You can view and download a copy of the book HERE: http://www.consiglio.regione.campania.it/cms/CM_PORTALE_CRC/servlet/Docs?dir=docs_biblio&file=BiblioContenuto_3641.pdf
Please read as much of the chapter as possible in advance (67 pages in total) and we will discuss it together.
If you're using a hard copy please be sure to obtain THE REVISED EDITION of A Theory of Justice. ***
A bio from the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy: John Rawls was arguably the most important political philosopher of the twentieth century. He wrote a series of highly influential articles in the 1950s and ’60s that revitalized Anglo-American moral and political philosophy. His first book, A Theory of Justice (1971), salvages the social-contract tradition, using it to articulate and defend a detailed vision of egalitarian liberalism. In Political Liberalism (1993), he recast the role of political philosophy, accommodating it to the effectively permanent “reasonable pluralism” of religious, philosophical, and other comprehensive doctrines or worldviews that characterize the populations of modern societies. He explains how philosophers can characterize public justification and the legitimate, democratic use of political power while accepting that pluralism. The Law of Peoples (1999) extends these theories to liberal foreign policy, with the goal of imagining how a permanently peaceful and tolerant international order might be possible. John Rawls has the unusual distinction among contemporary political philosophers of being frequently cited by courts of law in the English-speaking world."

Steve Bannon is disinvited from a conference event after outcry and “pull out” threats from attendees and other invitees alike. Unpopular speakers are drowned out by protesters within venues. Are these examples of threats to Free Speech or others using their free speech to enact consequences on those with views seen as “beyond the pale“? What are the responsibilities of various groups to police speech - the media? social media companies? corporations? universities? governments? This evergreen topic emerges once again to spark our consideration."

Philosophy Book Discussion November 15, Thursday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Karl Popper on the Scientific Method.
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Karl Popper (1902-1994) is a towering figure in the philosophy of science. He made significant contributions to debates concerning scientific methodology and theory choice, the demarcation of science from pseudo-science, the nature of probability and quantum mechanics, and the methodology of the social sciences. His work is notable for its wide influence both within philosophy and among practicing scientists themselves. Popper is famous for his uncompromising rejection of the classical inductivist view of the scientific method in favour of empirical falsificationism. A scientific theory can never be proven, but it can be falsified, meaning that it can and must be scrutinized by decisive experiments. Popper's general epistemology, critical rationalism, commends the Socratic method of posing questions and critically discussing the answers offered. He considers knowledge in the traditional sense of certainty to be unobtainable. In political philosophy, Popper is known for his vigorous defence of liberal democracy and the principles of social criticism that he came to believe made a flourishing open society possible. His political philosophy embraces and attempts to reconcile ideas from all the major democratic ideologies. Since we have no infallible way of getting or maintaining good government, a prudently constructed open society constructs institutions to ensure that any regime can be ousted without violence, no matter what higher ends it proclaims itself to be seeking. *** This meetup is dedicated to discussing two of Karl Popper's essays on how science actually works: — "The Aim of Science" (1957) — "The Problem of Demarcation" (1974) A volume containing the pieces can be viewed and downloaded HERE - https://www.box.com/s/tgqzgwlkw4qc7l7glnibchza8l0b1gjn Please read as much of the essays as possible in advance — each essay is about 10 pages in length."

Philosophy Discussion November 15, 2018, Thursday, 7pm. Free? Centre For Inquiry Talk - Living Without Religion. Quote: Have you given up your faith? Maybe you never had faith.

Because the human skull is the ultimate echo chamber — and often not a friendly one — meeting, listening to, and sharing with others experiencing similar situations can help. Why not take part in a peer-support group where you can get things off your chest? No higher powers, no dogma. Just free expression, empathy, understanding, without judgment. We’re here for you. We are Living Without Religion, and you can too. Thursday, November 15, we meet again.

Quote: "Toronto Skeptics in the Pub Event: Check back later to see what is happening this month. We may have a speaker, or maybe we will just have a free and open discussion. In any case we will have a nice, enjoyable time with a friendly group of skeptically minded people. We'll be at our usual venue, the Fox and Fiddle, just across from Wellesley Subway station. To find us, tell the wait staff you are looking for the Skeptics. We should be on the 3rd Floor. The Association for Science and Reason (formerly Skeptics Canada) ( http://www.scienceandreason.ca ) has opened its regular monthly dinner to interested Meetup members, and it has been a lot of fun. Heated discussion, hot food, good company--a great way to spend the evening without losing I.Q. points. As usual, don't be put off by the small number of people signing up through Meetup. Most of the regulars do not respond, they just show up. We typically have between 30 and 50 attendees."

*What is the meaning of our existence?* https://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/09/11/the-meaningfulness-of-lives/
*Is morality objective?* https://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/07/24/the-maze-of-moral-relativism/
*Does anything really matter?* https://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/12/05/navigating-past-nihilism/
*Is it ethical to commit ourselves to be the last generation?* https://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/06/06/should-this-be-the-last-generation/
This meetup we will examine these short essays by contemporary moral philosophy professors that directly tackle paramount philosophical issues.."

Philosophy Book Discussion November 22, Thursday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: John Stuart Mill: Utilitarianism (Week 2).
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "This is the second of two meetups dedicated to Mill's Utilitarianism, a now fundamental text in the study of ethics and one of the most important philosophical statements of the utilitarian worldview. In it, Mill defends the consequentialist doctrine that the morally-worthy action is the one producing the greatest amount of happiness in the world. Mill also responds to a wide range of criticisms and (what he took to be) misunderstandings of utilitarianism, such as: it is a doctrine worthy only of swine, it is too demanding, it fails to recognize that happiness is subjective or unobtainable, it makes people cold and unsympathetic, it is a godless ethics, it fails to recognize that in making ethical decisions there usually isn’t time to calculate all the future consequences, and so on. This week we will be discussing Chapter 4 ("Of What Sort of Proof the Principle of Utility is Susceptible") and Chapter 5 ("On the Connection Between Justice and Utility") of Utilitarianism. A volume of J.S. Mill's writings can be viewed and downloaded HERE - https://www.box.com/s/h9h37ancinovyazd1mpkor8iqgxhulyy (the reading is on pages 248-285) ... Please read the chapters in advance of our discussion. *** (See the following articles for further background information on John Stuart Mill - https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/mill/ or https://www.iep.utm.edu/milljs/ )."

Philosophy Book Discussion November 23, Friday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Kant: Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals (Week 1).
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Published in 1785, Immanuel Kant's Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals is one of the most profound and influential works of moral philosophy ever written. The work aims to properly identify and corroborate the fundamental principle of morality, the categorical imperative, so as to prepare the way for a coherent and comprehensive account of justice and human virtues (which was later published in 1797 as the Metaphysics of Morals). Here, Kant argues that all human beings have equal dignity as ends in themselves, never to be used by anyone merely as a means, and that universal and unconditional duties must be understood as an expression of the human capacity for rational autonomy and self-governance. As such, laws of morality are laws of freedom. Along the way, Kant expounds on such concepts as duty, the good will, moral worth, the ideal community constituted by all rational beings, and freedom of the will. *** For this series we will be discussing the entirety of the Groundwork of Metaphysics of Morals over three meetups. Our reading plan is as follows: Week 1 (CURRENT) - Preface and Section I ("Transition from common to philosophical moral rational cognition") Week 2 - Section II ("Transition from popular moral philosophy to the metaphysics of morals") Week 3 - Section III ("Transition from the metaphysics of morals to the critique of pure practical reason") A good translation of the text is available in a volume that can be downloaded HERE - http://pdf.to/bookinfo/practical-philosophy_2.pdf (The Groundwork starts on page 37.) Please read the text in advance of our discussion — the reading for each week is about 25 pages."

Quote: "Four centuries of fur-trade trapping nearly wiped beavers off the North American map. Now they're back, big time, and we're discovering that sharing the landscape with such tenacious ecosystem engineers isn't always easy. We're also learning that there are compelling reasons to try to coexist with this iconic species. Contributor Frances Backhouse explores how two control freaks — humans and beavers — can get along."

Philosophy Book Discussion December 2, Thursday, 6pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Christine Korsgaard: "Aristotle and Kant on the Source of Value".
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "What do we mean when we say that something has value or significance? Is value a matter of objective truth or is it "in the eye of the beholder"? It's both (and neither), argues Christine Korsgaard, a professor of philosophy at Harvard University, in her 1986 paper "Aristotle and Kant on the Source of Value". Influenced by Immanuel Kant and by her teacher John Rawls, she sketches a middle way about value that she calls rationalist theory (not to be confused with the rationalism of Descartes, Spinoza, and Leibniz). According to Korsgaard's rationalism, sometimes also called constructivism, values arise out of the human activity of practical reasoning. Values are practical reasons that we give to ourselves and to each other about the ultimate ends of life. Korsgaard goes on to show that both Kant and Aristotle are rationalist in her sense, though they differ in the kind of rational activity they see as ultimately good: contemplation for Aristotle and the good will for Kant. A bit about the author. Christine Korsgaard is an influential American moral philosopher. A student of John Rawls, she carried forward his approach to morality through research in metaethics and the history of moral philosophy. In 2002 she became the first woman to give the prestigious John Locke Lectures at the University of Oxford. Our goal in this meet-up is to understand Korsgaard's rationalist theory of value and to learn something about the way Aristotle and Kant understood what is good in life. We'll ask such questions as: What is the nature of value? What are we really doing when we use our reason to think about and discuss questions of value? Can there really be a middle way between objectivism and subjectivism? What is philosophical contemplation and is it more or less valuable than morally good action? What is the best activity in human life? No prior background in philosophy is required. Just bring yourself and your critical thinking — and please read as much of the paper as you can. The text is difficult and we'll do our best to unpack it together. The paper "Aristotle and Kant on the Source of Value", first published in the journal Ethics in 1986, is freely available at this link: https://dash.harvard.edu/bitstream/handle/1/3164347/korsgaard_aristotlekantvalue.pdf?sequence=5 Also helpful is the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy entry on constructivism in metaethics, especially the sections on Kant and Aristotle: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/constructivism-metaethics/."

Please read the text in advance of our discussion — the reading for each week is about 25 pages. *** Additional resources: Immanuel Kant is widely regarded as the philosopher who best exemplifies the thought and ideals of the Enlightenment. He was influenced by the modern physics of Newton, the rationalist perfectionism of Leibniz and Wolff, the critical empiricism of Locke and Hume, and Rousseau's celebration of liberty and individualism, and his work can be seen partly as an attempt to combine and synthesize these various ideas.

Philosophy Book Discussion December 9, Sunday, 2pm-4pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Plato's Apology, on the Examined Life (Toronto Freemason Event).
Location: West Toronto Masonic Temple, 151 Annette St, Toronto.
Quote: "The Apology by Plato is an account of the famous trial of Socrates, who was charged in 399 BC with impiety and corrupting the youth. One of the most famous and important works of Western philosophy, the Apology is less concerned with asserting any particular philosophical doctrine than it is with creating a portrait of the ideal philosopher. On trial, with his life at stake, Socrates maintains his cool and unwaveringly defends his way of life as unassailably just. He explains why he has devoted his life to challenging the most powerful and important people in the Greek world. The reason he says is that rich and famous politicians, priests, poets, and a host of other people profess to know what is good, true, holy, and beautiful, but when Socrates questions them, they are revealed to be foolish rather than wise. Please have the dialogue read in advance (about 20 pages long) and we will discuss it together. A good translation by G.M.A. Grube can be viewed in a collection available for download HERE - https://www.box.com/s/36jjx8l0z6a15g4kylfh6dxq45ek4axl "

Science History December 21, 2018, Friday, 5:23pm ET (December 21 22:23 UT). 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
