Quote: "Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was one of the seminal figures of 20th century science fiction, whose work has been adapted into popular films such as Blade Runner, Total Recall, and Minority Report. His many stories and novels explored a wide variety of themes, including metaphysics, artificial intelligence, human identity, altered states of consciousness and existence, theology, monopolistic corporations, authoritarian governments, paranoia, and alternate histories. Many philosophers and cultural theorists have found Dick's works to be a rich source of insight into the nature of the contemporary world and the social, psychological, and existential implications of technology. The recipient of critical acclaim and numerous awards throughout his career, Dick was inducted into the Science Fiction Hall of Fame in 2005, and in 2007 became the first science fiction writer to be included in the Library of America series of distinguished and historically significant authors. *** This meetup is dedicated to discussing five of Philip K. Dick's renowned short stories: — Second Variety (41 pages) — I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon (15 pages) — Upon the Dull Earth (18 pages) — Imposter (12 pages) — The Days of Perky Pat (19 pages)
A collection containing these stories can be viewed and downloaded HERE - https://www.box.com/s/rhqwaqxxevpv0q3piwf297hn3ndgpwj5 Please have the stories read in advance of our discussion.

Radio Philosophy History June 4, 2019, Tuesday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - Reading Montaigne. Quote: "Why a 16th century writer still matters today. Michel de Montaigne was many things: a 16th century French writer, bureaucrat, and self-defined accidental philosopher. He was also the inventor of the literary form we now call the essay. His Essais – variously translated as "trials" or "experiments" in ideas – have touched centuries of readers and writers. Flaubert once exhorted us to "read him in order to live." Contributor Tony Luppino opens the writings and life of Western literature's original free thinker, who wrote on everything from idleness and liars, to wearing clothes and punishing cowardice."

Location:Bahen Centre for Information Technology, Room 1130, University of Toronto 40 St George St, Toronto.
Quote: "Artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms, especially machine learning (ML) programs, are now being employed or proposed for use in: a) scanning résumés to weed out job applicants; b) evaluating risks children face in their families; c) informing judicial decisions about bail, sentencing, and parole; d) diagnosing medical conditions, and not just classifying medical images; e) identifying faces in the crowd for the police; f) caring for seniors; g) driving autonomous vehicles; and h) guiding and directing drones in eliminating terrorists.
I will propose what society must require of algorithms that affect human welfare, health, life, and death. I shall discuss concepts including reliability, openness, transparency, explainability, trustworthiness, responsibility, accountability, empathy, compassion, fairness, and justice. The results will aid researchers in prioritizing problems for AI and HCI research, and will assist policy makers and citizens in determining when and how AI technology should be deployed."

Radio Philosophy History Science June 6, 2019, Thursday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - Drug Use for Grownups. Quote: "What's wrong with responsible adults using psychoactive drugs in the pursuit of happiness? Nothing, according to Carl Hart, Chair of the Department of Psychology at Columbia University. He is a neuropharmacologist and believes healthy adults have the right to use drugs to enhance their lives as they see fit. In a compelling lecture in Vancouver in May 2019, Hart challenges our assumptions about drug use, and argues that policies that restrict and punish drug use are fueling the drug crisis in Canada and the United States. The lecture and question and answer session were presented by the University of British Columbia Wall Exchange. See also our June 18 program, The Portugese Model for an international perspective on dealing with the drug crisis." Info: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/topic/Tag/schedule

Location: Room 200, Larkin Building, University of Toronto, 15 Devonshire Place, Toronto.
Quote: "'Artificial intelligence is challenging the dominant paradigm of scientific management by increasing the importance of judgement in decision-making, which has been historically undervalued. The highly specialised jobs and process-driven bureaucratic structures that dominate large organizations favour excessive automation. This would reduce the number of roles available for qualified workers while simultaneously increasing the risk of catastrophic prediction failure, as humans are likely to be prematurely removed “from the loop.” In order to ensure the productivity benefits promised by artificial intelligence while avoiding large scale failure, a program of humanistic management that allows for error and values qualitative judgement needs to be adopted.' Biography: Ryan Khurana is the Executive Director of the Institute for Advancing Prosperity, a technology policy think tank in Toronto. Prior to this, he held roles in technology policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute in Washington, D.C., and at the Institute of Economic Affairs in London, UK. *** NOTE: This is a talk and Q&A presented by the University of Toronto's Centre for Ethics that is open to the public.

Philosophy Computers/Internet Book Discussion June 17, Monday, 4:30pm-6:30pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Wish I Were Here: Boredom and the Interface (Centre for Ethics Event).
Location: Larkin Building, Room 200, University of Toronto, 40 St George St, Toronto.
Quote: "A timely meditation on the profound effects of constant immersion in technology, also known as the Interface, the new book Wish I Were Here by University of Toronto professor Mark Kingwell draws on philosophical analysis of boredom and happiness to examine the pressing issues of screen addiction and the lure of online outrage. Without moralizing, Kingwell takes seriously the possibility that current conditions of life and connection are creating hollowed-out human selves, divorced from their own external world. While scrolling, swiping, and clicking suggest purposeful action, such as choosing and connecting with others, Kingwell argues that repeated flicks of the finger provide merely the shadow of meaning, by reducing us to scattered data fragments, Twitter feeds, Instagram posts, shopping preferences, and text trends captured by algorithms. Written in accessible language that references both classical philosophers and contemporary critics, Wish I Were Here turns to philosophy for a cure to the widespread unease that something is amiss in modern waking life. Mark Kingwell, Professor, Department of Philosophy, University of Toronto.
*** 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."

Radio Philosophy History Science June 18, 2019, Tuesday, 9:05pm. 99.1 FM. CBC Radio 1 - Ideas - The Portuguese Model. Quote: "Two decades ago, Portugal was in the grip of a nation-wide drug epidemic. The rates of addiction and overdose were so high that virtually every family in Portugal was affected. The dire situation led the country's leaders to a radical, daring solution: the decriminalization of all drugs and a health-care approach—rather than a criminal law approach— to deal with addiction. What began as the "Portuguese experiment" is now celebrated around the world as the "Portuguese model." Contributor Megan Williams takes us to ground zero of the Portuguese experiment, talking to the doctor who helped set up the system, as well as to healthcare workers, and drug addicts still alive because of it. As parts of Canada face alarming addiction rates, she asks, is it time for Canada to adopt the Portuguese model? See also our June 6 program Drug Use for Grownups."

Science History June 21, 2019, Friday, 11:54am ET (June 21 15:54 UT). June Solstice. Northern hemisphere summer begins. 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

Philosophy Book Discussion June 24, Monday, 6:30pm-8:30pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: Plato's Cratylus, on Language.
Location: Brookfield Place, Lower Level Food Court, 181 Bay St, Toronto, M5J 2T3.
Quote: "The Cratylus is Plato's dialogue on the nature of language. It's thought to be one of Plato's most enigmatic works, not least because we sense that for much of the time the character of Socrates is speaking tongue in cheek. It is unclear when he speaks in earnest. The Cratylus has been the subject of radically different interpretations by scholars as to its meaning and intent, some of whom have argued in recent times that it prefigures contemporary notions of language as comedy and play. Three interlocutors make very different contributions to the dialogue. First, Hermogenes defends the view that correctness in names is simply a matter of establishing linguistic conventions to use certain sounds to tag certain objects. Cratylus, on the other hand, subscribes to a naturalism wherein names are correct insofar as they reveal something about the nature of their bearers. When Socrates joins the conversation the questions stake out deeper ground. They explore a number of philosophical issues, including the nature of interpretation, truth and falsehood, etymology, translation, being and essence, the possibility of a perfect language, and the relation between words and reality. *** This meetup is dedicated to discussing Plato's Cratylus. Please have the entire dialogue read in advance. Be sure to make enough time for reading as this one is fairly long, about 60 pages. TIP: When reading Plato, pay attention to the details of the drama as much as the overtly philosophical discourse. Attentive readers of Plato know that he is often trying to convey important messages with both in concert. A renowned translation by C.D.C. Reeve can be found in a collection available for download HERE - https://b-ok.cc/book/1205909/72e399 (the dialogue begins on page 101 of the volume.) *** (For some background on Plato, see his entry in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/plato/)"

Quote: "The opening decade of the 21st century marked Paul Kennedy's first years as host of IDEAS. This episode considers interviews (which were suddenly part of Paul's job description). He focuses specifically on a conversation with dumpster-diver Ken Lyotier, who was profiled on the show in 2002. Lyotier organized street people, who were collecting refuse on the streets of Vancouver's Downtown East Side, in order to obtain bottle deposits. Those same people (who are often themselves dismissed as 'garbage' by society at large) eventually organized, owned, and operated a storefront recycling business called "United We Can". They ultimately changed environmental legislation in British Columbia, and in other jurisdictions throughout North America." Info: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/ideas/topic/Tag/schedule

Let's grab a drink for this month's drunken philosophical symposium and get to the bottom of this! John Vervaeke’s series on the Meaning Crisis is highly recommended: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpqDUjTsof-kTNpnyWper_Q."

Philosophy Book Discussion June 30, Sunday, 6:30pm-9pm. Free. Toronto Philosophy Meetup: John Rawls: Political Liberalism (Week 3: Citizens and Their Representation).
Location: Yorkville Village, Lower Level Food Hall, 55 Avenue Rd, Toronto.
Quote: "John Rawls is a giant of twentieth-century moral and political philosophy. We are continuing our series 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 essential text for understanding debates in contemporary political philosophy about the meaning, structure, morality, and possibility of liberal democratic societies. *** This week we are discussing "Lecture II: The Powers of Citizens and Their Representation". The lecture/chapter contains the following subsections: § 1. The Reasonable and the Rational § 2. The Burdens of Judgment § 3. Reasonable Comprehensive Doctrines § 4. The Publicity Condition: Its Three Levels § 3. Rational Autonomy: Artificial not Political § 6. Full Autonomy: Political not Ethical § 7. The Basis of Motivation in the Person § 8. Moral Psychology: Philosophical not Psychological Please read as much of the chapter as possible in advance of our discussion. The reading for each week is about 40 to 50 pages. You can view and download a copy of the book HERE: https://b-ok.cc/book/2361540/0c5b4b . About the author: 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. For further background info see the following entries in the Stanford and Internet Enyclopedias of Philosophy - https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/rawls/ and https://www.iep.utm.edu/rawls/ (For attendees, please note that our discussions revolve around what we think of an author's actual words rather than the content of secondary references and interpretations.)...
Yorkville Village is a short walk from Bay subway station. The food hall is located next to the Yorkville Ave entrance. Look for the table with a Meetup sign on it."
