Philosophy Book Discussion April 10, Wednesday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Human Cloning and Genetic Engineering.
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, ON.
Quote: "In February 1997 Ian Wilmut, a Scottish biologist, announced that he had successfully cloned a sheep, Dolly, from the cells of a Finn Dorset ewe that had been dead for six years. In fact the news that mammalian cloning from adult tissue was possible set off an excited debate among scientists, politicians, ethicists, and the general public about the event's implications and prospects for the cloning of a human being. In tandem genetic engineering quickly become a reality with the introduction of genome editing techniques such as TALEN and CRISPR-Cas9. Few avenues of scientific inquiry raise more thorny ethical questions than cloning and genetic editing of human beings, a radical way to control our DNA. What are the moral concerns that plague this scientific progress? If some forms are ethically permissible how will the political system handle these forms of genome duplication and editing? Although seeming futuristic this practice will soon become our reality. --- Within this meetup we will be discussing the bioethics of genome editing and human cloning. There is no compulsory reading but it is highly recommended taking a look at the following articles: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/cloning/ | https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/enhancement/ "

Food April 12, 2019, Friday, 7pm-10pm. $5/PYOW. Toronto Vegan Meetup: Toronto Vegan Drinks.
Location: Parka, 424 Queen St West, Toronto, M5V 2A7.
Quote: "Hosted by Beverly... Vegan Drinks is a monthly social networking event for people interested in veganism. You don't have to be a vegan to come along, but please eat and drink only vegan-friendly fare at this event. Come have fun after work with fellow vegans and make new friends through networking! Since this is the halloween version, there will be prizes for the best costume. So Dress up! What to do? • Show up. Buy drinks. Buy food if you are hungry. Socialize. It is so simple, yet so effective. There is no cover charge. But I will be collecting donations (suggested: 2-5$). - This is because the meetup costs 180$ to run. • Be friendly! We will hand out name tags, so you can march right up to someone and greet them by name. • Promote! If you represent an organization (either as an employee or volunteer or general supporter), talk about the organization and the work you've been involved in. • Socialize! Talk about your vegan and Animal Rights interests, your favourite restaurant, your dream job for animals, your blog, whatever. If you have any questions, please email beverlycarey68@gmail.com"

Philosophy Book Discussion April 14, Sunday, 3pm-5pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Harry Frankfurt: On Truth (Week 2).
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? *** This is our second meeting on the philosopher Harry Frankfurt's book On Truth. We will be discussing Chapters 4 to 9 this week. The book can be downloaded in various formats HERE - https://b-ok.cc/s/?q=harry+frankfurt+on+truth . (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."

Philosophy Discussion/Reading April 20, Saturday, 11am-1pm. Free. HAT Weekly Discussion Forum - Political Correctness
Quote: "In a poll released by the Angus Reid Institute, it was found that two-thirds of Canadians believed political correctness is often taken too far; especially when it comes to the terminology used in daily speech. Even more than this, around three-quarters of Canadians have admitted to withholding a personal thought or opinion; not only for the sake of being mannerly, but also to avert negative criticism. On the other hand, some argue that political correctness is "the only social and morally acceptable outlook." It's not just an attitude, but a way of life that offers "the satisfaction of knowing that you are undoing the social evils of centuries of oppression." When we think it but we don’t say it…Who would benefit from this? Who would this damage?."

Philosophy Book Discussion April 21?, Sunday?, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez.
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, M5J 2T3.
Quote: "The fictional village of Macondo lies in northern Colombia, somewhere in the great swamps between the mountains and the coast. Founded by Jose Arcadio Buendia, his wife Ursula, and nineteen other families, "It was a truly happy village where no one was over thirty years of age and where no one had died." At least initially. One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles, through the course of a century, life in Macondo and the lives of six Buendia generations — from Jose Arcadio and Ursula, through their son, Colonel Aureliano Buendia (who commands numerous revolutions and fathers eighteen additional Aurelianos), through three additional Jose Arcadios, through Remedios the Beauty and Renata Remedios, to the final Aureliano, child of an incestuous union. As babies are born and the world's "great inventions" are introduced into Macondo, the village grows and becomes more and more subject to the workings of the outside world, to its politics and progress, and to history itself. And the Buendias and their fellow Macondons advance in years, experience, and wealth ... until madness, corruption, and death enter their homes. From the gypsies who visit Macondo during its earliest years to the gringos who build the banana plantation, from the "enormous Spanish galleon" discovered far from the sea to the arrival of the railroad, electricity, and the telephone, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's classic novel weaves an enchanting tapestry of the everyday and the fantastic, the humdrum and the miraculous, life and death, tragedy and comedy — a tapestry in which the noble, the ridiculous, the beautiful, and the tawdry all contribute to an astounding vision of human life and death, a full measure of humankind's inescapable potential and reality. *** This meetup is dedicated to discussing One Hundred Years of Solitude by the Colombian author and journalist Gabriel García Márquez, winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize in Literature. The novel, published in 1967, is widely thought to be one of the greatest novels of all time. (E.g. ranking 9th on this meta-list of greatest books ever written: https://thegreatestbooks.org/) An acclaimed translation of the work can be viewed and downloaded HERE - https://www.box.com/s/yi8zf269livz7fa0gi4nrmcelpselzuh 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. Also, please come to our discussion prepared with a thought or two about the novel to share with the rest of the group The thought can be about anything, but please relate it to something specific in the novel if possible (e.g. a quote or passage)."

Forty years ago, nickel mines and smelters around a relatively small city in Northern Ontario had created one of the most dramatic examples of environmental devastation in the history of this planet. The surrounding landscape was completely dead and totally black. Nothing could grow, and people were dying. Now, Sudbury boasts the cleanest air of any city in Canada. Lakes — and there are 330 substantial lakes within the city limits — have come back to life, and the countryside is now almost completely green!

Food Recycling Environment/Nature April 28, Sunday, 11am-5:30pm. Bare Market Pop-Up.
Location: Patagonia Toronto, 500 King St West.
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 April 28, Sunday, 5pm-7pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Thomas Nagel: The View From Nowhere (Week 1: Mind).
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, ON.
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 contemporary 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 beginning a new series on Thomas Nagel's book The View From Nowhere (1986). Nagel is one of the most respected American philosophers of the past forty years and The View From Nowhere is thought to be the most systematic presentation of his approach.
We'll be discussing the entire book over 10 meetups. The reading plan is as follows: Week 1 (CURRENT) - "Chapter I. Introduction" AND "Chapter II. Mind" | Week 2 - "Chapter III. Mind and Body" | Week 3 - "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. You can view and download a copy of the book in various formats HERE: https://b-ok.cc/s/?q=thomas+nagel+the+view+from+nowhere."
