Philosophy Book Discussion August 1, Wednesday, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Spinoza - Ethics.
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Spinoza's Ethics is one of the most significant texts of the early modern period. In it, Spinoza addresses the most fundamental perennial philosophical questions concerning the nature of God, human beings and a good life. His startling answers synthesize the longstanding traditions of ancient Greek and Jewish philosophy with the developments of the emerging scientific revolution. The resulting philosophical system casts out the willing, personal God of Abrahamic religions and takes up the challenge of reconceiving the natural world and human beings in an entirely secular way. A powerful work of elegant simplicity, the Ethics is a brilliantly insightful consideration of the possibility of redemption through intense thought and philosophical reflection.
In this meetup we will be discussing the definitions, axioms and the first 15 propositions in a step by step manner. Although the book is titled 'Ethics', the majority of the content in the reading and within our discussion will be regarding the metaphysical foundations of Spinoza's system. Lastly only nine pages of reading are assigned but due to the relative difficulty of this philosophical work it is advised to begin reading as early as possible.
A copy of 'Ethics' can be found online here: http://www.earlymoderntexts.com/assets/pdfs/spinoza1665.pdf."

Philosophy Book Discussion August 4, Saturday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Aristotle: Nicomachean Ethics (Books VII-X).
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics addresses the question of how to live well and originates the concept of cultivating a virtuous character as the basis of his ethical system. Here Aristotle sets out to examine the nature of happiness, and argues that happiness consists in 'activity of the soul in accordance with virtue', including moral virtues, such as courage, generosity and justice, and intellectual virtues, such as knowledge, wisdom and insight. The Ethics also discusses the nature of practical reasoning, the value and the objects of pleasure, the different forms of friendship, and the relationship between individual virtue, society and the State. Aristotle's work has had a profound and lasting influence on all subsequent Western thought about ethical matters.
This meetup is the third in a five part series on Aristotle's ethics. As such, we will slowly be working through the book as well as the Eudemian Ethics. This meetup will focus on the last four books of the Nicomachian Ethics, and a review of the entire work.
An online copy of the work can be downloaded here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GsCe9hi1_nORpD6CyspiEbZCPM4GTigU A physical copy should be easily found in all major book store locations.

Canada History August 6, Monday. Civic Holiday / Simcoe Day. Quote: "The first Monday in August is a holiday all across Ontario. But the holiday is called different things in different areas. 1968 - Toronto City Council officially called the civic holiday 'Simcoe Day' after Major-General John Graves Simcoe, who was appointed the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada on September 12th, 1791. He convened the first Legislative Assembly and established York (now Toronto) as the capital of the province. One of his crowning achievements was to begin the phasing out of slavery in Upper Canada, which officially ended in 1810 - 23 years before it was abolished in the British Empire and 55 years before the Emancipation Proclamation in the United States."

Philosophy Book Discussion August 12, Sunday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - John Rawls: The Sense of Justice.
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 VIII, titled 'The Sense of Justice'.
The chapter (on pages 397 to 449 of the book) contains the following subsections:
69. The Concept of a Well-Ordered Society | 70. The Morality of Authority | 71. The Morality of Association | 72. The Morality of Principles | 73. Features of the Moral Sentiments | 74. The Connection between Moral and Natural Attitudes | 75. The Principles of Moral Psychology | 76. The Problem of Relative Stability | 77. The Basis of Equality
(Note: This chapter seems to be relatively self-contained so it should be fine to jump in even if you haven't attended our previous discussions on 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 (49 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. ."

Quote: "This is the second meetup in a series about Ludwig Wittgenstein's "On Certainty". The text is available here (http://prawfsblawg.blogs.com/files/wittgenstein-on-certainty.pdf). Please ensure that you have read and considered the text before the meetup.
The previous meetup in this series covered G. E. Moore's "Proof of an External World", since Wittgenstein's text is a reaction to that lecture. The previous meetup's description includes quite a bit of background, so you may wish to consult that if you did not attend that meetup: https://www.meetup.com/The-Toronto-Philosophy-Meetup/events/250814655/
Something to consider: Is "certainty" the same thing as "indubitability"? In other words, if a belief cannot be doubted, is it certain?."

Philosophy Book Discussion August 18, Saturday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Philosophy of Art (Week 1: Burnyeat, Bell, Wimsatt/Beardsley).
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "This week we'll be discussing the following short readings in the philosophy of art: - "Art and Mimesis in Plato’s ‘Republic’" by M. F. Burnyeat (18 pages) - "Significant Form" by Clive Bell (5 pages) - "The Intentional Fallacy" by W. K. Wimsatt Jr. and Monroe Beardsley (13 pages)
These can be found on pages 455 to 492 of the collected volume Philosophy: Basic Readings (Second Edition), which can be viewed and downloaded at https://bit.ly/2HjbBZG ... Please read the selections in advance and we'll discuss them together. ***
This week we'll be reading three major essays in the philosophy of art: We start with Myles Burnyeat's sympathetic account of Plato’s argument that art would corrupt the youth and lead people away from the truth, showing that the thinking that led to Plato's conclusion is not as quaintly outdated as we might initially think. We'll take a look at Clive Bell's view that art is significant form: patterns of lines, shapes and colours which have the power to evoke the aesthetic emotion in the sensitive viewer.
Another important discussion in the philosophy art is on whether the author’s or artist’s intentions are relevant when interpreting a work of art. W. K. Wimsatt Jr. and Monroe Beardsley put the case against this in: "The Intentional Fallacy".."

Here’s how it will work: I will prepare five base flavours (double Dutch chocolate, vanilla, cherries and kirsch, espresso, and mint chocolate chip). Everyone is invited to bring anything that they want with ice cream – either things to mix in (brownie chunks, cookie dough, peanut butter cups), cookies to make an ice cream sandwich with, cupcakes for a cupcake sundae, vegan preserves or sauces, anything at all! Also, make sure to bring a spoon and bowl.
When: Sunday, August 26th at 3:00pm | Where: Grange Park picnic tables |
Bring your friends, family, and any ice cream fiends you know! There’s always more than enough to go around.

Philosophy Book Discussion August 26, Sunday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Short Stories by Anton Chekhov.
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Anton Chekhov (1860-1904) is recognized as a master of the modern short story and a leading playwright of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Chekhov described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, and his works are regarded as outstanding representatives of early modernism and 19th-century Russian realism, influencing important writers of an array of genres including Ernest Hemingway, Vladimir Nabokov, Tennessee Williams, James Joyce, and Henry Miller.
"Chekhov is one of the few indispensable writers," said Susan Sontag. "His stories, which deluge us with feeling, make feeling more intelligent; more magnanimous. He is an artist of our moral maturity."
This meetup is dedicated to discussing five of Chekhov's renowned short stories: — "The Lady With the Little Dog" (18 pages) — "Gooseberries" (10 pages) — "The Black Monk" (34 pages) — "The Huntsman" (4 pages) — "The Student" (4 pages)
Please read the stories in advance of our discussion.
A critically-acclaimed translation of the stories can be viewed and downloaded HERE - https://www.box.com/s/4oigpjysi3jp4j7j2p47997xauumdev7

Quote: "At Bare Market, we’re on a mission to help you reduce waste. As Toronto’s first one-stop shop for package-free goods, we offer affordable and locally sourced bulk food, body and home care products that are good for you and good for the planet! What’s our aim? 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."

Radio Philosophy History Environment/Nature August 31, Friday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - Political Diversity on Campus. Quote: "Universities are supposed to be dedicated to the exchange of ideas. But according to social psychologist Jonathan Haidt, campuses now skew so far to the left that they've become what he calls "political monocultures" in which voices that stray too far from liberal orthodoxy are shouted down. Paul Kennedy speaks with Professor Haidt – and with other scholars who have been thinking about the complex question of diversity on campus." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule
