Philosophy is sometimes seen as a quaint and esoteric activity limited to college campuses. But philosophy is really the quintessential human activity as we try to make sense of our confusing world. The New York Times publishes a regular column called The Stone written by philosophers on a range of contemporary questions. These columns have recently been collected into a book, The Stone Reader. This group will read and discuss essays from the book and will explore how philosophy can help us think about important issues in the modern world. Discussion will be facilitated by Professor Wendy Turgeon. For more information and to register, contact Jocelyn Ozolins: firstname.lastname@example.org.
