In this talk, you will be introduced to a summary of the entire process, beginning with pleadings, the various procedures and deadlines that occur before trial, trial itself and enforcement, and a very brief introduction to what appeals involve. You will learn the following what the basic phases are in a civil lawsuit: -Pleadings -Discovery -Mediation -Pre-trial conferences -Motions -Trial -Appeals
You will learn about the concept of ?precedents?. You will learn about the different sets of laws and rules and customs (practices) that may apply.

Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, M5J 2T3.
Quote: "In recent years freedom of speech has come under attack from a range of enemies. Yet some people argue that it is a basic human right to be allowed to voice your opinions no matter how offensive these might be to others. In this article, the influential legal philosopher Ronald Dworkin (1931–2013) goes beyond the sorts of instrumental considerations that John Stuart Mill famously used in On Liberty and defends the view that freedom of speech should be understood as an aspect of human dignity and as fundamental to a flourishing democracy. *** To continue our series of readings on political philosophy from Philosophy: Basic Readings (Second Edition), this week we'll be discussing Ronald Dworkin's "A New Map of Censorship", written in 1994. The text can be found on pages 243 to 248 of the volume, which can be viewed and downloaded HERE: https://b-ok.cc/s/?q=philosophy+basic+readings Please read the selection in advance and we'll discuss it together. *** (For background info on the topic, see the following entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/freedom-speech/) "

March 10, Sunday, 2am is set to 3am. Daylight Saving Time Begins. "Daylight saving time (DST), often referred to incorrectly as daylight 'savings' time, is a widely used system of adjusting the official local time forward, usually one hour from its official standard time for the duration of the spring and 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. (People go to bed and wake up earlier, which reduces use of electric lights.) Some opponents reject this argument. Europeans commonly refer to the system as summer time: Irish Summer Time, British Summer Time, and European Summer Time. This is reflected in the time zones names as well, e.g. Central European Time (CET) becomes Central European Summer Time (CEST)." Info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daylight_saving_time

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 March 13, Wednesday, 12:30pm-2:30pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: On Private Discrimination (Centre for Ethics Event).
Location: Room 200, Larkin Building, University of Toronto, 15 Devonshire Place, Toronto.
Quote: "On what basis, if any, may owners of small businesses discriminate against customers or their requests? In particular, should these vendors enjoy a right to refuse to people with manifest beliefs that they do not hold? And, if so, what are the contours of this right? On the one hand, there are those who deny that private discrimination of this kind is ever permissible; on the other hand, there are those who maintain that it is always permissible. Perhaps predictably, my view occupies a position in between these two extremes: small vendors should enjoy a prerogative to discriminate against customers and their requests, but this prerogative is restricted. My defence of this claim comes in two parts. First, I explain why owners of small businesses should enjoy such a prerogative to discriminate. Second, I set out three ways in which we should restrict the prerogative.

*** 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 look for each other after the event for further discussion about the topic. 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."

Philosophy Book Discussion March 17, Sunday, 3pm-5pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Harry Frankfurt: On Truth (Week 1).
Location:West Toronto Masonic Temple, 151 Annette St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "Our culture's devotion to b*llsh*t may seem much stronger than our apparently halfhearted attachment to truth. Some people won't even acknowledge "true" and "false" as meaningful categories, and even those who claim to love truth cause the rest of us to wonder whether they, too, aren't simply full of it. Practically speaking, many of us deploy the truth only when absolutely necessary, often finding alternatives to be more saleable, and yet somehow civilization seems to be muddling along. But where are we headed? Is our fast and easy way with the facts actually crippling us? Or is it "all good"? Really, what's the use of truth, anyway? *** For this meeting, we will be discussing Chapters 1 to 3 (pages 3 to 48) of On Truth, a book by the philosopher Harry Frankfurt. The second meeting will be held on April 14 where we will discuss the remaining chapters. The book can be downloaded in various formats HERE - https://b-ok.cc/s/?q=harry+frankfurt+on+truth . Please have the text read in advance of our discussion. (For some background info on Harry Frankfurt, see the following: - https://www.encyclopedia.com/humanities/encyclopedias-almanacs-transcripts-and-maps/frankfurt-harry-1929 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Frankfurt ) *** 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. (If you'd like to put on your own philosophy-related event or discussion with the Toronto Philosophy Meetup, please contact us.) - Feel free to come to this meetup half an hour early for either general or Freemasonry related questions. - We will not be discussing Masonic ritual and degree work or be making specific references to them at the event. - Our meetings are projected to be positive spaces, so any discriminatory or derogatory behaviours will not be tolerated."

Science March 20, Wednesday, 5:58pm EDT (March 20 21:58 UTC). March Equinox (aka Northern Vernal/Spring Equinox, Chunfen). "An equinox in astronomy is the event when the Sun can be observed to be directly above the Earth's equator, occurring around March 20 and September 23 each year. More technically, the equinox happens when the Sun is at one of two opposite points on the celestial sphere where the celestial equator and ecliptic intersect. In a wider sense, the equinoxes are the two days each year when the center of the Sun spends an equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on Earth. The word equinox derives from the Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night). In practice, at the equinox, the day is longer than the night. Commonly the day is defined as the period that sunlight reaches the ground in the absence of local obstacles. The Sun is a disc and not a single point of light, so when the center of the Sun is below the horizon, the upper edge is visible. Furthermore, the atmosphere refracts light, so even when the upper limb of the Sun is below the visible horizon, its rays reach over the horizon to the ground. In practice, when the upper limb of Sun is on the visible horizon, this limb is in reality 1 degree below it. These effects together make the day about 14 minutes longer than the night at the equator, and longer still at sites toward the poles. The real equality of day and night happens a few days towards the winter side of each equinox.
Spring equinox (Chunfen) and autumn (Qiufen) or fall equinox... These names can be used when one wants to relate the equinox to a season. The seasons of the northern hemisphere and southern hemisphere are opposites (the spring equinox of one hemisphere is the autumn equinox of the other) so these names can be ambiguous."

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.

Philosophy Book Discussion March 24, Sunday, 5pm-7pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: When are we truly dead?
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "Within bioethics there has been a consistent debate regarding the nature and process of death. Specifically, three issues are of primary importance: How do we define death, what is the criteria for determining that death has occurred, and which clinical tests can we use to determine that the criteria is met. There are various solutions but as of late the discourse focuses on brain death vs cardiopulmonary cessation. While there is an important technical debate this topic also leads directly into the nature of humanity, in that in examining how human life ends we can more fully understand what it is to be human. --- This meetup is dedicated to discussing the definition of death. We'll be looking into various questions and case studies regarding this topic. There will not be a mandatory reading but the following article is highly recommended: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/death-definition/."

Philosophy Discussion March 28, Thursday, 7:30pm-9:30pm. Free. Stoicism Toronto Meetup: Philosophy Café: Self-control and Personal Integrity.
Location: The Madison Pub, 2nd floor, 14 Madison Ave, Toronto.
Quote: "It's March. That means most of us have let go of our new year's resolutions (statistically speaking). Why does this happen every year? Why do we skip the gym, smoke the cigarette or eat the marsh-mellow(s)? Why can't humans reliably do the things they know they should do? Welcome to another Philosophy Café. Grab a drink and a bar stool. Let's chat about self-control, personal integrity and the weakness of the will. The Greeks called it "akrasia" or "lacking command." We might use terms like will-power, motivation or "getting one's act together." Come as you are. No prior experience with philosophy is necessary. There will question prompts to stimulate free discussion and thoughtful people to connect with. All you need is a touch of curiosity." Hosted by Daniel.

Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "John Rawls is a giant of twentieth-century moral and political philosophy. We are beginning a new series of meetups 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 indispensable text for understanding debates in contemporary political philosophy about the meaning, structure, justness, and very possibility of liberal democratic societies. We'll be discussing the entire book over 11 meetups. The reading plan is as follows: Week 1 (CURRENT) - "Introduction" AND "Introduction to the Paperback Edition" Week 2 - "Chapter I. Fundamental Ideas" Week 3 - "Chapter II. The Powers of Citizens and Their Representation" Week 4 - "Chapter III. Political Constructivism" Week 5 - "Chapter IV. The Idea of an Overlapping Consensus" Week 6 - "Chapter V. Priority of Right and Ideas of the Good" Week 7 - "Chapter VI. The Idea of Public Reason" Week 8 - "Chapter VII. Institutional Framework" Week 9 - "Chapter VIII. The Basic Liberties and Their Priority" Week 10 - "Chapter IX. Reply to Habermas" Week 11 - "The Idea of Public Reason Revisited" The reading for each week is about 40 to 50 pages. Please read as much of it as possible in advance of our discussion. You can view and download a copy of the book HERE: https://b-ok.cc/book/2361540/0c5b4b."
