Philosophical Journeys: An Introduction to Philosophy
Many members of AHA are also regularly attending an ongoing series of Philosophy lectures and discussions led by Gordon Ziniewicz on 2nd and 4th Sundays from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
This series seeks to develop the habit of reflection by means of a give-and-take encounter with some of the great ideas of Western and Eastern philosophy. Beginning with the ancient Greeks, we will examine some of the major issues that have occupied human beings then and ever since: questions about the universe we live in, the meaning of our individual lives, the ways we live together, the things we make, the things we hold dear, and the dreams we dream.
Each session will begin with an explanatory lecture by Gordon Ziniewicz. It will be most helpful for attendees to have thoroughly prepared for each session by reading the essay and supplementary works posted on http://www.americanphilosophy.com/intrphil.html. Each lecture will be followed by lively discussion and debate.
Gordon Ziniewicz has a Ph.D. in Philosophy from Boston College. He has previously taught classes in, among others, Introduction to Philosophy, Philosophical Anthropology, and Ethics.
