Philosophy is Not a Luxury: Finding Truth, Meaning and Purpose in the Foundation of the American Mind and Spirit
Thu., March 3, 7 p.m. 2011
Please join Jeff Carreira, Director of Education at EnlightenNext, as he discusses the greatest American contribution to worldly philosophy - Pragmatism. First developed in the late 19th century as a daring response to the pressures of rapid modernization, this philosophy endeavored to recognize the importance of Darwin’s theory of evolution while preserving space for religious faith. Carreira will explore how the roots of Pragmatism continue to affect the way Americans see the world today, and how this understanding can greatly influence the potential future we are capable of creating.
