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.
