Philosophy Book Discussion September 2, Sunday, 6pm-8pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: David Deutsch: The Beginning of Infinity.
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Throughout history, mankind has struggled to understand life's mysteries, from the mundane to the seemingly miraculous. In this important new book, David Deutsch, an award-winning pioneer in the field of quantum computation, argues that explanations have a fundamental place in the universe. They have unlimited scope and power to cause change, and the quest to improve them is the basic regulating principle not only of science but of all successful human endeavor. Taking us on a journey through every fundamental field of science, as well as the history of civilization, art, moral values, and the theory of political institutions, Deutsch tracks how we form new explanations and drop bad ones, explaining the conditions under which progress — which he argues is potentially boundless — can and cannot happen.
In his previous book, The Fabric of Reality, Deutsch described the four deepest strands of existing knowledge — the theories of evolution, quantum physics, knowledge, and computation — arguing jointly they reveal a unified fabric of reality. In this new book, he applies that worldview to a wide range of issues and unsolved problems, from creativity and free will to the origin and future of the human species. Filled with startling new conclusions about human choice, optimism, scientific explanation, and the evolution of culture, The Beginning of Infinity is a hugely ambitious and highly original book that will become a classic of its kind.
You can view and download a pdf of the book here - http://pdf.to/bookinfo/the-beginning-of-infinity-explanations-that-transform-the-world_3.pdf | Resources: https://www.amazon.ca/Penguin-Classics-Beginning-Infinity-Deutsch/dp/0140278168/ } https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnlARZbkUzg | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNJiGYkPCBY
Please only attend if you have read Chapter 3, or at least watched the YouTube supplements. Feel free to read or reread as much of the book that interests you as all the ideas will relate in some way to our discussion."

Philosophy Book Discussion September 4, Tuesday, 6pm-8pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Kant: Toward Perpetual Peace.
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Perpetual peace is a seminal piece by Kant that deeply influenced the vision of fathers' of the post-WW1 League of Nations, the preamble to the charter to the United Nations, the grounds for Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the contours of contemporary debate in cosmopolitanism. The essay is also the basis for democratic peace theory (http://www.oxfordbibliographies.com/view/document/obo-9780199756223/obo-9780199756223-0014.xml)in the modern-day study of politics and international relations.
Perpetual Peace opens with Kant alluding to a satirical inscription of "perpetual peace" on a signboard that a Dutch innkeeper has put up along with the picture of a graveyard. He continues that "we shall not trouble to ask whether it applies to men in general, or particularly to heads of states (...) or only to the philosophers so blissfully dream of perpetual peace". Kant's own view is that perpetual peace is not a chimera but a possibility, and the very fact of its possibility obliges us to work towards it as a shared goal of humanity.
Some of the influential claims that Kant advances in this work are that states should have a republican constitution, there should be no standing armies, a federation of states would be required to ensure a perpetual peace, and every world citizen has a right to hospitality. Notably, the first claim about the republican constitution has stirred much debate about promoting democracies in other states, the third claim about the federation of states is ambiguous (as Kant also alludes to the world government as another possible road to global peace), and the last claim about the right to hospitality has been recently revived by many philosophers in the debates on recent refugee crises.
In relation to the above-mentioned Kant's claims, some thought-provoking questions arise: Is Kant arguing for a federation of states or a world government; which one of the two will ensure a global perpetual peace? Should we promote or enforce democracies in other states for sake of global peace? Do refugees have any special human rights to hospitality on the host country? Should sovereign states be able to decide who they want to allow an entry into their territory? In this meet-up, we shall discuss these questions which relate to some controversial contemporary issues.

Philosophy Book Discussion September 8, Saturday, 3pm-5pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Plato's Meno, on Virtue/Knowledge (Week 1) (Toronto Freemason Event).
Location: West Toronto Masonic Temple, 151 Annette St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: ""Can you tell me, Socrates — can virtue be taught? Or is it not teachable but the result of practice? Or is it neither of these, but men possess it by nature, or in some other way?"
With this four-part question begins one of the most provocative and accessible of Plato's dialogues, the Meno. (Often recommended to beginning readers in philosophy, e.g. http://www.thereadinglists.com/best-philosophy-books-for-beginners/). The action sees an older but ever ironic Socrates humbling a proud young aristocrat, Meno, as they search for a clear understanding of what it is to be a good human being. They work through a number of possible definitions of virtue, each suggested by Meno and dismantled by Socrates.
The dialogue then takes an unexpected turn from ethics to epistemology, as the nature of their investigation itself becomes the topic of investigation. What is it to know something after all? And what is the relationship between knowledge and virtue? Do those who act without virtue do so because they are naturally bad or because they are confused by some incorrect view of the world? Why is it better to act with virtue anyways, whatever it turns out to be?
Their investigation of their investigation takes us on a tour of many ideas and possibilities, including the immortality of the soul, the relationship between divine intervention and goodness, the difference if any between philosophical dialectic and sophistic (rhetorical) dispute, the method of hypothesis, the nature of mathematical (a priori) knowledge, the difference between knowledge and true belief, and the famous paradox of Meno: what a man knows he cannot seek, since he knows it, and what he does not know he cannot seek, since he does not know what it is. It seems that logically one cannot inquire productively into what one does not already know — nor of course into what one already does! So what is it to inquire, learn, and grow for us, human beings? ***
This event is organized by The Toronto Freemason Book Club and Discussion Group (https://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Freemason-Book-Club-Discussion-Group/) and co-hosted with the Toronto Philosophy Meetup. For this first of two meetups on Plato's Meno we will be discussing the dialogue up to line 80e, where Meno asks " ... And how will you enquire, Socrates, into that which you do not know? What will you put forth as the subject of enquiry? And if you find what you want, how will you ever know that this is the thing which you did not know?" (This may be translated differently depending on your edition.) Feel free to come half an hour early either for general or Freemasonry related questions, although we will not be discussing Masonic ritual and degree work or be making specific references to them. Our meetings are projected to be positive spaces, so any discriminatory or derogatory behaviours will not be tolerated. A good translation by G.M.A. Grube can be viewed in a collection available for download HERE - https://app.box.com/s/36jjx8l0z6a15g4kylfh6dxq45ek4axl (the dialogue begins on page 870). For some background on Plato, see his entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/plato/."

Quote: "Join Us @ The Richmond Hill Central Library for a Film screening of the new acclaimed documentary 'Dominion', along with a potluck and socializing. Please feel free to bring your friends and family to this screening and potluck. If you would like, please bring a vegan potluck item(a food or beverage item that doesn't contain any meat, fish, diary, eggs or honey) Thank you...
Film Synopsis:'Dominion' is the feature-length documentary sequel to 2014's Lucent. While Lucent focused mostly on the Australian pig farming industry, Dominion will have a much broader scope as a comprehensive account of the numerous ways animals are used and abused in Australia. By exploring six primary facets of our interaction with animals - Companion Animals, Wildlife, Scientific Research, Entertainment, Clothing and Food - the film will question the morality and validity of our dominion over the animal kingdom. Drawing heavily from the Aussie Farms Repository so as to contain the most recent, highest-quality footage from across the country, Dominion will also make use of emerging technologies, such as aerial drones, to capture new perspectives and examine the wider context of animal exploitation upon our landscape and within our society.

Philosophy Book Discussion September 10, Monday, 6pm-8pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Laurence BonJour: "Can Empirical Knowledge Have a Foundation?"
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Epistemology is the branch of philosophy concerned with the nature, conditions, and extent of human knowledge. It asks questions like: "What is knowledge?", "What does it mean to say that someone knows, or fails to know, something?", "Does knowledge depend on context?", "What is it to be a good or responsible knower?", "What makes a belief, or disbelief, properly justified?", "Is justification internal or external to one's own mind?", "Are there limits to what we can know?", "Can we know anything at all?", and so on. A vast array of sophisticated views have been developed in response to problems such as these. Epistemology also deals with issues to do with the creation and dissemination of knowledge in particular areas of inquiry.
This is the third meetup of our series on major publications in epistemology. This week we're discussing one of the most highly-cited papers in contemporary epistemology, "Can Empirical Knowledge Have a Foundation?" by Laurence BonJour, a professor of philosophy at the University of Washington. The paper was first published in the American Philosophical Quarterly in 1978.
The paper can be viewed and downloaded HERE - http://joelvelasco.net/teaching/4330/bonjour78-canempiricalknowledge.pdf
Please read the paper in advance of our discussion. (For background you may also want to read the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy entry on Epistemology - https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/epistemology/) ***
Topics we hope to cover in this series include skepticism, the definition of knowledge, the structure of knowledge and justification, epistemic closure, theories of justification, epistemic virtues and responsibility, naturalized epistemology, a priori knowledge, contextualism, testimonial knowledge, self-knowledge, and social epistemology. We'll also read about the nature of knowledge in specific domains of inquiry, such as natural science, history, religion, economics, psychology, and so on."

Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "While in Perpetual Peace Kant bases the possibility of a global lasting peace on human beings’ capacity for autonomous reasoning, in the Idea for a Universal History Kant gives a teleological account for it "Individual man and even entire nations little imagine that, while they are pursuing their own ends (...) they are unwittingly guided in their advance along a course intended by nature" (IUH). Can these arguments in the two texts be reconciled to render Kant's overall account consistent? The question has occupied many Kantians for years. In conjunction with the meet-up on Perpetual Peace, in this meet-up, we shall endeavour to answer this question along with other related ones. More details to follow shortly...

Philosophy Book Discussion September 15, Saturday, 6pm-8pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Ayn Rand: "Philosophy: Who Needs It".
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Most people dismiss philosophy as irrelevant to life, but as Ayn Rand shows in novels like The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged, living by the correct fundamental ideas is as crucial to human existence as food and water. The articles in this collection explain and develop Rand’s unique view on the role of philosophy in man’s life.
In the titular essay, “Philosophy: Who Needs It,” Rand shows why, in order to deal with concrete, real-life problems, an individual needs some implicit or explicit view of the world, of man’s place in it, and of what goals and values he ought to pursue. The abstract premises an individual holds may be true and consistent, reached by conscientious thought—and the purpose of the science of philosophy is to teach one how to achieve this—or his premises may be a heap of clashing ideas unwittingly absorbed from the culture around him. But either way, she argues, the power of philosophy is inescapable. It is something everyone should be concerned with. How to properly approach and study philosophy is then discussed in “Philosophic Detection” (ch. 2).
Subsequent essays reveal the true power of philosophy, for good or ill, in human affairs. In “Faith and Force: The Destroyers of the Modern World” (ch. 7), for instance, Ayn Rand discusses how a culture’s political system is the product of its philosophic ideas. She explains why rational ideas lead to freedom—and why periods dominated by religion and other irrational doctrines are periods of statism, of dictatorship, of tyranny. ***
In this first meeting of a series on Ayn Rand and her philosophy we'll be discussing three essays from her book, Philosophy: Who Needs It, specifically focusing on the subject matter relating to metaphysics and epistemology.
1. "Philosophy: Who Needs It" 2. "Philosophical Detection" 3. "The Metaphysical Versus the Man-Made"
Please read as much of the essays as possible in advance (46 pages in total) and we will discuss them together. You can view and download a copy of the book here: https://www.box.com/s/8dpfoeazv73bfdhf2nhuwxt484i2p1ie Limited copies may also be found at your library.
Depending on the groups interest the next meet up will either continue with metaphysical and epistemological subject matter, or move on to her ethics, i.e. selfishness.
(See the following for background information on Rand: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ayn_Rand )."

Philosophy Book Discussion September 17, Monday, 4pm-6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Freedom in a Universe of Echoes? (Centre for Ethics Event).
September 17 Location: Room 200, Larkin Building, 15 Devonshire Place, University of Toronto.
Quote: "When we go online, we cannot avoid that our data are collected. Private and (some) governmental organizations use these data to produce a personal profile of you and me, some for observation and surveillance, others for mirroring and continuously confirming my individual preferences, choices, activities, thoughts, and emotions by offering corresponding products. Something similar happens in social networks. Many users are looking for other people who confirm what they are thinking, saying, and doing. Others participate in groups which are constituted by a shared world view or at least a shared view on some issues, whose members encourage each other to maintain their view. Of course it always happens that these people are confronted with information or with views which are different, which do not coincide with what they are thinking. But in a universe of echoes, dissent and dissonance, criticism and contestation, are only one more opportunity to confirm or slightly modify one´s own view, but not to change it or to give it up. Conspiracy theories are the most prominent examples of such a method. In my presentation, I shall ask about the consequences of this to our freedom. When we make a choice in a universe of echoes – is this still a free choice? Or does freedom require the experience of dissent, contestation, and even of failure and learning? If the answer to the last question were yes, then freedom would be lost in a universe of echoes." Klaus Günther Goethe-Universitãt Frankfurt Faculty of Law
*** 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 we will be in attendance. Sometimes we meet after the event for further discussion about the topic if people are interested.
About the Centre For Ethics ... at the University of Toronto: The Centre for Ethics is an interdisciplinary centre aimed at advancing research and teaching in the field of ethics, broadly defined. The Centre seeks to bring together the theoretical and practical knowledge of diverse scholars, students, public servants and social leaders in order to increase understanding of the ethical dimensions of individual, social, and political life. In pursuit of its interdisciplinary mission, the Centre fosters lines of inquiry such as (1) foundations of ethics, which encompasses the history of ethics and core concepts in the philosophical study of ethics; (2) ethics in action, which relates theory to practice in key domains of social life, including bioethics, business ethics, and ethics in the public sphere; and (3) ethics in translation, which draws upon the rich multiculturalism of the City of Toronto and addresses the ethics of multicultural societies, ethical discourse across religious and cultural boundaries, and the ethics of international society. See here for other events presented by the Centre For Ethics... (If you'd like to meet people from the Toronto Philosophy Meetup at one of their other events, let us know and we'll post the event to our group.)."

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.."

But it was the key to learning how a small and little-known, perhaps even secret, society of key scientists in the federal government in the 1920s, thwarted an ill-conceived plan to move plains bison into Wood Buffalo National Park because it would have mixed incompatible species. But the "Brotherhood" did much more than that. Author and naturalist Briony Penn tells the story of the B, and how over the decades they quietly shaped how we think about nature."

Though largely untestable from the perspective of scientific method, their theories nevertheless inform contemporary individuals of the workings of the human mind.

Philosophy Book Discussion September 23, Sunday, 3pm-5pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Plato's Meno, on Virtue/Knowledge (Week 2) (Toronto Freemason Event).
Location: West Toronto Masonic Temple, 151 Annette St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: ""Can you tell me, Socrates — can virtue be taught? Or is it not teachable but the result of practice? Or is it neither of these, but men possess it by nature, or in some other way?"
With this four-part question begins one of the most provocative and accessible of Plato's dialogues, the Meno. (Often recommended to beginning readers in philosophy, e.g. http://www.thereadinglists.com/best-philosophy-books-for-beginners/). The action sees an older but ever ironic Socrates humbling a proud young aristocrat, Meno, as they search for a clear understanding of what it is to be a good human being. They work through a number of possible definitions of virtue, each suggested by Meno and dismantled by Socrates.
The dialogue then takes an unexpected turn from ethics to epistemology, as the nature of their investigation itself becomes the topic of investigation. What is it to know something after all? And what is the relationship between knowledge and virtue? Do those who act without virtue do so because they are naturally bad or because they are confused by some incorrect view of the world? Why is it better to act with virtue anyways, whatever it turns out to be?
Their investigation of their investigation takes us on a tour of many ideas and possibilities, including the immortality of the soul, the relationship between divine intervention and goodness, the difference if any between philosophical dialectic and sophistic (rhetorical) dispute, the method of hypothesis, the nature of mathematical (a priori) knowledge, the difference between knowledge and true belief, and the famous paradox of Meno: what a man knows he cannot seek, since he knows it, and what he does not know he cannot seek, since he does not know what it is. It seems that logically one cannot inquire productively into what one does not already know — nor of course into what one already does!
So what is it to inquire, learn, and grow for us, human beings? ***
This event is organized by The Toronto Freemason Book Club and Discussion Group (https://www.meetup.com/Toronto-Freemason-Book-Club-Discussion-Group/) and co-hosted with the Toronto Philosophy Meetup. For this second of two meetups on Plato's Meno we will be discussing the rest of the dialogue after line 80e and thinking about the message of the work as a whole. Feel free to come half an hour early either for general or Freemasonry related questions, although we will not be discussing Masonic ritual and degree work or be making specific references to them. Our meetings are projected to be positive spaces, so any discriminatory or derogatory behaviours will not be tolerated. A good translation by G.M.A. Grube can be viewed in a collection available for download HERE - https://app.box.com/s/36jjx8l0z6a15g4kylfh6dxq45ek4axl (the dialogue begins on page 870).

Philosophy Book Discussion September 27, Thursday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Kant: "On The Saying: This May Be True in Theory, But Does Not Hold in Practice".
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Kant is famous for his cosmopolitan views (elaborated in Perpetual Peace and the Idea of a Human History) that emphasize the status of individuals as world citizens in the international system. The notion of 'world citizenship' goes beyond the traditional notion of 'state citizenship' in the sense that it is not conditioned on one's membership in a particular state. In other words, I need not be a citizen of a particular state but I can still be a citizen of the world such that I can bear human rights (entitlements in virtue of being a human being) with corresponding duties towards other individuals and states. Moreover, these human rights and duties can be distributed through different transnational institutions (perhaps a Kantian federation of states or a world government).
If such a cosmopolitan world is possible and desirable then can we coherently defend the idea of sovereign statehood in this world? In theory and Practise, Kant advances a rigorous argument for the basis of a sovereign state and its role in creating and maintaining a system of rights. Given Kant's cosmopolitan views, contrary to what one might expect, Kant's notion of sovereignty is viewed as a strong one by many political philosophers, e.g Kant famously argued that a right to revolution is NEVER justified and citizens must put up with an unjust ruler. Whether Kant's argument in Theory and Practice can be squared with his cosmopolitan views; and whether Kant succeeds in providing a convincing basis for a sovereign state shall be some of the guiding questions for this meet-up.

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 Book Discussion September 30, Sunday, 6pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: The Culture Industry: Enlightenment as Mass Deception.
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "The creation of the Frankfurt School of critical theory in the 1920s saw the birth of some of the most exciting and challenging writings of the twentieth century. The term 'culture industry' has been a key reference point in the critical literature on culture and the media ever since the classic chapter in Horkheimer and Adorno's Dialectic of Enlightenment. It is out of this background that the great critic Theodor Adorno emerged. He argued that the culture industry commodified and standardized all art. In turn this suffocated individuality and destroyed critical thinking. At the time, Adorno was accused of everything from overreaction to deranged hysteria by his many detractors. In today's world, where even the least cynical of consumers is aware of the influence of the media, Adorno's work takes on a more immediate significance. The Culture Industry is an unrivalled indictment of the banality of mass culture. For this meetup we will be reading and discussing this chapter from Horkheimer and Adorno: https://analepsis.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/cultureindustry.pdf."
