The next Victoria Philosophy Salon topic: DIALECTICS.
Dialectics was proposed and developed by the great philosopher Hegel. What is it? A THESIS comes forward. It could be an idea, social movement, or environmental change for instance. An ANTITHESIS responds to it. Over time a SYNTHESIS of the two occurs. This leads to a new thesis. What are the strengths and weaknesses of this analysis? What are its limits? Where does it have no influence?
Dialectics had a great influence on Darwin, Marx and Freud. Some of Hegel’s work is even applied these days to Quantum Mechanics. Dialectics in action!
Do come to the discussion. It is at 6:30 pm Wednesday February 24th at the Serious Coffee in Cook Street Village.
Everyone is welcome.
