June 4, 2018, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM @ Bemis Hall
Come to Bemis Hall on Monday, June 4, at 12:30 to hear Bijoy Misra discuss “India’s Discovery of Humanity.” What is humanity? What is that special endowment that the humans have that distinguishes them from other creatures? Philosophical reflections on topics like this engaged the Indian scholars around 900BC when they happened to ponder on the cosmology of the universe. Massive wars and major conflicts had already happened resulting in huge loss of life and long periods of unrest. We will examine the philosophical speculations that have flourished to build humanity as a rational discovery. Humanity is not grandiose, but it is joyful internal peace! The COA provides beverages and dessert. The lectures last about an hour, including a question and answer period. Participants are welcome to stay after the program to continue their discussion. All ages welcome!
