Philosophy Book Discussion October 4, Thursday, 6pm-8pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - Aquinas: Summa Theologica (Question 1: The Nature of Theology).
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "Throughout history, man has been offered the following alternative: be “moral” through a life of sacrifice to others—or be “selfish” through a life of sacrificing others to oneself. In The Virtue of Selfishness, Ayn Rand blasts this as a false alternative, holding that a selfish, non-sacrificial way of life is both possible and necessary for man.
The Virtue of Selfishness is a collection of essays presenting Ayn Rand’s radical moral code of rational selfishness and its opposition to the prevailing morality of altruism—i.e., to "the duty to sacrifice for the sake of others."
In “The Objectivist Ethics,” Rand gives an outline of her code of rational selfishness, and of her argument establishing it as the only objective, fact-based moral code in human history. In the course of the essay, she raises and answers a fundamental and fascinating question: Why does one even need a morality?
In essays including “The Ethics of Emergencies,” “The ‘Conflicts’ of Men’s Interests,” and “Doesn’t Life Require Compromise?” she raises common ethical questions, shows how altruism has crippled people’s ability to approach them rationally, and explains how her moral code provides a solution to them. In “Man’s Rights” and “The Nature of Government” she applies her ethics to formulate the basic principles of her political philosophy, while rejecting the altruistic doctrines of “rights” to health care, employment, etc. ***
In this second meeting of a series on Ayn Rand we'll be discussing several essays from her book, The Virtue of Selfishness: - "Chapter 1: The Objectivist Ethics" - "Chapter 3: The Ethics of Emergencies" - "Chapter 4: The “Conflicts” of Men’s Interests" - "Chapter 7: Doesn’t Life Require Compromise?" - "Chapter 10: Collectivized Ethics" - "Chapter 17: Racism"
Please read as much of the assigned essays as possible in advance (about 60 pages in total) and we will discuss it together.
Limited copies may also be found at your library.

Here you can find the 10-metre South Pole Telescope (SPT), tasked with observing some of the oldest light in our universe; light emitted just after the Big Bang. In 2016, a next-generation microwave camera, SPT-3G, was installed onto the telescope. This camera allows astronomers to map out the Cosmic Microwave Background in more detail than ever before, providing new information on clusters of galaxies, cosmic inflation, and particle physics. Join me as I go through the science and design behind the brand new SPT-3G camera, and take you along on my 2-month expedition down to the South Pole in 2017 to perform vital upgrades."

Canadian History October 8, Monday. Thanksgiving Day in Canada. Quote: "Long ago, before the first Europeans arrived in North America, the farmers in Europe held celebrations at harvest time. To give thanks for their good fortune and the abundance of food, the farm workers filled a curved goat's horn with fruit and grain. This symbol was called a cornucopia or horn of plenty. When they came to Canada they brought this tradition with them. In the year 1578, the English navigator Martin Frobisher held a formal ceremony, in what is now called Newfoundland, to give thanks for surviving the long journey. He was later knighted and had an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean in northern Canada named after him - Frobisher Bay. Other settlers arrived and continued these ceremonies." http://www.craigmarlatt.com/canada/symbols_facts&lists/thanksgiving.html

Is the existence of God demonstrable? — 3. Does God exist? Question 3: God's Simplicity — 1. Is God a body? — 2. Is there a composition of form and matter in God? An especially readable and modernized translation of the Summa can be viewed and downloaded for free HERE - www.nd.edu/~afreddos/summa-translation/TOC.htm
Although the plan is to read parts of the text together at the meetup, you may still want to look at the selections in advance (about 12 pages in total this week) to gain some prior familiarity with the arguments. We won't be able to read everything together at the meetup. (For some background on Thomas Aquinas see the following entries in Wikipedia - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Aquinas or the Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy - https://www.iep.utm.edu/aquinas/)."

'Inaesthetics' brings to the fore a mind that equally regards art and philosophy as the production of truth and, in the spirit of Badiou, maintains "faithfulness" to these truths. For this meetup we will be discussing a short lecture given by Alain Badiou. http://www.lacan.com/issue22.php | http://www.lacan.com/frameXXIII7.htm."

Philosophy Book Discussion October 17, Wednesday, 12:30pm-2pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Misinformation and Freedom of Expression (Centre for Ethics Event).
Tentative Location: Room 200, Larkin Building, University of Toronto, 15 Devonshire Place · Toronto, ON.
Quote: ""With the rise of ‘fake news,’ European liberal democracies are currently in the midst of a debate about the value of laws that aim to regulate the spread of false information on the internet. One central objection directed against such laws is that they represent undue violations of our individual right to freedom of expression. In this presentation, I argue that they do not. More precisely, I contend that legal prohibitions against the intentional spread of false information can be justified on three main philosophical accounts of free speech: the epistemic account, the civic duties account, and the harm-based account. I then consider the objection according to which any legal prohibition against intentional misinformation will unjustly set back the interests of individuals who unintentionally misinform others." Étienne Brown, University of Toronto, Visiting Postdoctoral Fellow *** 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. ...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. ...(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.)."

Philosophy Book Discussion October 21, Sunday, 6pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Plato's Republic (Books VI-VII: The Sun and the Cave) (Toronto Freemason Event).
Tentative Location: West Toronto Masonic Temple, 151 Annette St, Toronto.
Quote: "In Books VI and VII of The Republic, Plato presents some of the most beautiful and famous metaphors in Western philosophy: the analogy of the sun, the analogy of the divided line, and the allegory of the cave. In the course of developing these three densely-related images, the character of Socrates explains who the philosopher is, and illustrates the effects of a philosophical education on the human soul. It is philosophy that moves the human being through the stages of knowledge and understanding, ultimately bringing him to the Form of the Good. *** 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. We will be discussing Books VI and VII of The Republic by Plato at this event. Please read as much of them as possible in advance (about 50 pages). An excellent new translation of The Republic by C.D.C. Reeve can be viewed and download HERE - http://www.3buna.si/uree/disruptedjournal/plato-republic.pdf (Books VI and VII are on pages 176-236.) * Everyone above the age 18, who has an interest in questioning more and learn more to become a better human being is welcome to our meetings, ** Also feel free to come half an hour early either for general or Freemasonry related questions. ***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 against other attendees will not be tolerated A good translation by G.M.A. Grube can be viewed in a collection available for download HERE - TIP: When reading Plato, pay attention to the subtleties in the drama as much as the explicit philosophical discourse. Attentive readers of Plato know that he is often trying to convey important things with both in concert. *** For some background on Plato, see his entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/plato/."

Yet the evidence from many scientists shows that screenings may do more harm than good. So who is causing women and doctors to buy in to myths about breast cancer screenings? Renee Pellerin, award-winning television producer (CBC News and Marketplace), presents her book Conspiracy of Hope, where she illustrates how a vortex of interests came together to make breast screenings standard medical practice. She exposes how radiologists, the imaging machinery manufacturers, and the pink ribbon charities have used fear and hope to distort scientific evidence. -- This event is part of the #OnCivilSociety series at the TPL.

Philosophy Book Discussion October 23, Tuesday, 6pm-8pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - Leibniz: Monadology.
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "G.W. Leibniz’s Monadology, one of the most important pieces of the Leibniz corpus, is at once one of the great classics of modern philosophy and one of its most puzzling productions. Leibniz surmised that there are indefinitely many substances individually 'programmed' to act in a predetermined way, each program being coordinated with all the others. This is the pre-established harmony which solved the mind body problem at the cost of declaring any interaction between substances a mere appearance, something which Leibniz accepted. Indeed it was space itself which became an appearance as in his system there was no need for distinguishing inside from outside. True substances were explained as metaphysical points which, Leibniz asserted, are both real and exact — mathematical points being exact but not real and physical ones being real but not exact. Because the essay is written in so condensed and compact a fashion, for almost three centuries it has baffled and beguiled those who read it for the first time. For this meetup we will discuss The Principles of Philosophy known as Monadology https://www.earlymoderntexts.com/assets/pdfs/leibniz1714b.pdf "

Philosophy Book Discussion October 25, Thursday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup - John Stuart Mill: Utilitarianism (Week 1).
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "John Stuart Mill (1806–73) was the most influential English language philosopher of the nineteenth century. He was a naturalist, an economist, and a liberal, whose work explores the consequences of a thoroughgoing empiricist outlook. In doing so, he sought to combine the best of eighteenth-century Enlightenment thinking with newly emerging currents of nineteenth-century Romantic and historical philosophy. His substantial corpus of works — which includes important texts in logic, epistemology, economics, social and political philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, religion, and current affairs — had a profound influence on British thought and political discourse. As a civil servant and an elected Member of Parliament, Mill advocated for the liberties of individuals, the rationalization of the law and legal institutions, women's equality and women's suffrage (the first British MP to do so), social reforms such as labour unions and farm cooperatives, the advancement of natural science, the use of economic theory in political decision-making, and public policies oriented toward human happiness and well-being. *** This is the first of two meetups dedicated to Mill's Utilitarianism, now a 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 Chapters 1 to 3 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) (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/ ) "

So what are we to make of today's sexual landscape, where we see the most diverse range of orientations and expressions of sexuality in history? Lesbian, gay, queer, cis, pansexual, leather daddies, stone butch, asexual... the list keeps growing. And there is entrenched push-back against that expansion. So who gets to say what about whom? And as the sexuality landscape broadens, what will it mean?." Info: http://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/features/schedule

Philosophy Book Discussion October 28, Sunday, 6pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Philosophy of Art (Week 2: Hume, Clark, Scruton).
Tentative Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto.
Quote: "This week we're discussing the following short readings in the philosophy of art: — "Of the Standard of Taste" by David Hume (15 pages) — "Two Paradoxes" by Michael Clark (4 pages) — "Photography and Representation" by Roger Scruton (24 pages)
About the essays: — David Hume's classic essay, first published in 1757, addresses the apparent paradox of taste: many people argue that taste is purely subjective yet at the same time want to claim that particular judgements that they make, such as that one writer is far superior to another, are objective. What we need is some kind of standard by which to measure different judgements of taste. Hume provides a set of criteria by which we can judge whether or not a critic’s judgement should be respected.
— We know that Desdemona in Shakespeare’s play Othello is not a real person, and that she isn’t really killed on stage. Yet we typically have feelings about her character and about what seems to happen to her. Is this irrational? How can a horror movie scare us when we know very well that the events shown are fictional? How can spectators enjoy tragic theatre when they are often moved to tears by what they witness? The essay by Michael Clark investigates the related questions of the apparently paradoxical nature of our responses to fiction and to tragedy.
— How does a photograph differ from a painting? Roger Scruton's essay gives a clear yet controversial answer to this question. For Scruton a photograph is the result of an optico-chemical causal process that removes human intentionality from the picturing process. Or at least that is what an ideal photograph is like. In contrast an ideal painting allows the artist to embody thoughts about the painting’s subject matter. If, as Scruton suggests, photography is distinctively different from painting in this respect, there are implications too for our understanding of film.."

History October 31, Wednesday. Halloween. Quote: "The druids believed that witches, demons, and spirits of the dead roamed the earth on the eve of November 1. Bonfires were lit to drive the bad spirits away. To protect themselves further from the mean tricks of the bad spirits, the druids offered them good things to eat. They also disguised themselves so that the spirits would think the druids belonged to their own evil company. Surely the spirits would not harm members of their own group! Or so the druids thought. And thus we celebrate Hallowe'en by playing trick or treat, dressing up in cortumes, and wearing masks. The name Hallowe'en is Scottish in origin and is short for "All Hallow's Eve," the night before "All Hallow's Day," or All Saint's Day. That day was set by Pope Boniface IV to honour the Catholic saints, and also to replace a Roman pagan festival of the dead which had been held in late February, the end of the old Roman year." http://www.craigmarlatt.com/canada/symbols_facts&lists/halloween.html

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.

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.

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."

*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."

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.

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."

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
