To make sustainable and ethical living easy and accessible for people from all walks of life.
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."

Philosophy Discussion July 21, Sunday, 2019, 2pm-3:30pm. $5. Centre for Inquiry Canada Toronto - Author Talk: Humanity: The World Before Religion, War and Inequality. Location: Toronto Public Library - Scarborough Civic Centre Branch, 156 Borough Dr, Scarborough, ON.
Quote: "About this Event... For 3 million years, from the time of the first human ancestor until the outbreak of the first true war around 4000 BC, more than 99.9% of history is the story of how many species of ancestral humans created and spread a common culture around the world without war or social divisions.
Why is this important? The end of the public space, the rise of modern technologies and the spread of ideologies meant to isolate communities by enflaming fears and resentments burying an old history. They are erasing the history of the world before war and destroying memories of a world based entirely on unrestricted human contact, honest words and shared technologies.
Humanity: The World Before Religion, War & Inequality is the first work to examine history as the two-part story of one human family. The first part looks at how a common culture of language, trade and travel was established and spread over the world in the pre-war world. The second part looks at how the consequences of that war rippled into our modern world. The story of a massive battle that destroyed humanity’s last pre-war civilization about 6,000 years ago would certainly be a tale passed down through the generations. It has been.
The second premise of Humanity is that underneath their religious gloss, the main elements of that first war are recalled in the 5,000-6,000 year old stories of the Bible’s Garden of Eden and India’s Kurukshetra War. Those stories from two of the world’s oldest texts – one that ends India’s Mahabharata and one that begins the Jewish Bible – take place around the same time and both tell the story of a great confrontation that destroyed the world as it was and began a new age of conflict.
Barry Brown is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated Canadian journalist. He has written over 3,000 articles for 120 major media worldwide.

Environment/Nature History Walk/Hike July 21, Sunday, 2019, 2pm. Free. TFN and Lost River Walk - Etobicoke Creek: Walk the treaty boundary of the "Toronto Purchase". Led by John Wilson. Start: In front of the Neilson Park Creative Centre, 56 Neilson Drive, Etobicoke. Quote: "A walk to make visible a forgotten place where indigenous history met colonialism on Etobicoke Creek. Near the Neilson Park Creative Centre there once stood a “Maple Tree blazed on four sides” that marked the west boundary of the 1805 Treaty 13 (“Toronto Purchase”) between the British Crown and the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The tree marked a surveyor’s line, later called “Indian Line” by settlers, which still today forms much of the boundary between Peel and York Regions. On the grounds of the Creative Centre we will explore this liminal landscape, where Elmcrest Creek flows into Etobicoke Creek in a wooded setting, to foreground a story of alienation, accommodation and resilience. Meet in front of the Neilson Park Creative Centre at 56 Neilson Drive, Etobicoke. TTC access by 112 West Mall bus from Kipling station, to the Dundas-and-West Mall Crescent bus stop; cross Dundas at the lights and walk north and west 500 meters on Neilson Drive. Difficulty: Moderate. This is a circular walk on park paths and some uneven ground."

Philosophy Book Discussion July 21, Sunday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Thomas Nagel: The View From Nowhere (Week 3: The Objective Self).
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 and 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 (CURRENT) - "Chapter IV. The Objective Self" Week 4 - "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"
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 July 24, Wednesday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Harper Lee: To Kill a Mockingbird.
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. Instantly successful, it has become a classic of modern American literature, winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1961. Set in the small Southern town of Maycomb, Alabama, the novel is both a young girl’s coming-of-age story and a darker drama about the roots and consequences of racism and prejudice, probing how good and evil can coexist within a single community or individual. The novel has inspired numerous adaptations, the most notable of which is the classic 1962 film starring Gregory Peck, whose Oscar-winning performance has become an enduring part of cinema history. Other adaptations include a Broadway play by Aaron Sorkin that debuted in 2018. Although widely taught in schools in the United States, the novel has often been subject to campaigns for its removal from classrooms. It is challenged for its use of racial epithets and for some of its portrayals of its black characters. ***
This meetup is dedicated to discussing To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The novel ranks 44th on this meta-list of the greatest books of all time: https://thegreatestbooks.org/ . A copy of the work can be viewed and downloaded HERE - https://b-ok.cc/book/3763980/e5cc9f Please have the novel read in advance of our discussion. The novel is about 350 pages long so you may want to get started early.

Philosophy Book Discussion July 31, Wednesday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: John Rawls: "Political Constructivism".
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "John Rawls is a giant of twentieth-century moral and political philosophy. We are continuing our series on his second major book Political Liberalism (1993). Rawls describes the problem it addresses as follows: "How is it possible that there may exist over time a stable and just society of free and equal citizens profoundly divided by incompatible religious, philosophical, and moral doctrines? Put another way: How is it possible that deeply opposed doctrines may live together and affirm the same political conception of a constitutional regime? What is the structure and content of a political conception that can gain the support of such an overlapping consensus?" Political Liberalism is considered an essential text for understanding debates in contemporary political philosophy about the meaning, structure, morality, and possibility of liberal democratic societies. ***
This week we are discussing "Lecture III: Political Constructivism". The lecture/chapter contains the following subsections: § 1. The Idea of a Constructivist Conception § 2. Kant’s Moral Constructivism § 3. Justice as Fairness as a Constructivist View § 4. The Role of Conceptions of Society and Person § 5. Three Conceptions of Objectivity § 6. Objectivity Independent of the Causal View of Knowledge § 7. When Do Objective Reasons Exist, Politically Speaking? § 8. The Scope of Political Constructivism
Please read as much of the chapter as possible in advance of our discussion. The reading for each week is about 40 to 50 pages. You can view and download a copy of the book HERE: https://b-ok.cc/book/2361540/0c5b4b ***
About the author: 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. For further background info see the following entries in the Stanford and Internet Enyclopedias of Philosophy - https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/rawls/ and https://www.iep.utm.edu/rawls/ (For attendees, please note that our discussions revolve around what we think of an author's actual words rather than the content of secondary references and interpretations.)."

Looking Ahead...

Speaker: Patrick Breysse (Ph.D. Johns Hopkins University Department of Physics and Astronomy), Postdoctoral Fellow studying cosmology at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics. Quote: "Fourteen billion years ago, the universe was little more than a cloud of hot hydrogen gas. I will tell the story of how that cloud of gas evolved into all of the galaxies, stars, and planets we see around us today. 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 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."
