Announcing April thinkPhilosophy Salon
“What Do the Rich Owe the Poor?”
When: Saturday, April 19th, 8pm
Where: Femina Potens, 2219 Market Street (at Sanchez), SF, CA. (Wheelchair accessible venue.)
Cost: $10-25 sliding scale Pay What You Want!
It’s tax time, so it’s time to consider the question: “What Do the Rich Owe the Poor?” Knee pads, jobs, education, or nothing at all? As we consider this question together, we’ll look at different rationale for social wellbeing – from utilitarianism and communism to “trickle down” economic theories. So come join our community of truth seekers, explore your beliefs about wealth and worth, and test your ideas about social and economic justice against experience.
thinkPhilosophy Salons are philosopher moderated, Socratic-styled discussions on questions of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty. Not for the faint of heart, these rigorous intellectual workouts will leave you feeling exercised, and wonder-full! No prior knowledge of philosophy is expected or assumed.
