Well, I (Rich) sure jumped the gun! I thought last week’s weather reports of a snowapocalypse could be trusted, and so I moved tonight’s discussion and lecture back a week. But, as it turns out, the weather is looking pretty nice (for Portland), so if you still want your weekly dose of philosophy and debate, or you’re simply looking to get out of the house and have a drink, come join us (Rich and Daude) at East Burn for some open discussion and debate. Daude’s been feeling pretty pessimistic about 20th century French philosophy, and this week I may have concluded that the “will” doesn’t exist after reading Albrect Dihle’s “The Theory of Will in Classical Antiquity,” Michael Frede’s, “A Free Will: Origins of a Notion in Ancient Thought,” and thumbing through Bob Doyle’s impressive hyperlinked-book on freewill, starting here: http://www.informationphilosopher.com/freedom/free_will_in_antiquity.html. If any of this sounds remotely interesting, or if you have another topic you want to throw in the mix, then come find us! We hope to see you tonight.
