Discussion Group

Questions of Value


A discussion group examining fundamental questions of value. Each meeting begins with a reception followed by an hour of structured conversation. No advanced reading is required, but a selection of quotations provides the catalyst for the discussion. Questions include:

  • How should we measure social progress?

  • What is it to have integrity in one’s values?

  • Is value created or discovered?

Open to graduate students.

Space is limited; for more information please contact Peter Wicks.
