The Getting of Wisdom

Hosted by David Turnbull

Further talks on major thinkers from Greek antiquity. We will trace the differences of approach taken by these philosophers down to the present day, particularly in relation to ethics. We will then open up the discussion to enable comparing approaches to the getting and attainment of wisdom advocated by a range of other historical and cultural groups (e.g. Hebrew, Roman, Christian, Taoist, Confucian, Buddhist, Indigenous). If you have any input about Greek and other ancient or modern cultures, please bring it along for discussion.
All are welcome to come along and join in.First meeting will be 10am, Tuesday 7th March. Then as follows:Room 22, Atherton Community Centre, 42 Mabel Street, AthertonEnrol
