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.
