The Philosophy Cabinet**
announces
a philosophical dinner
on

 "Humility"
Tuesday, January 22
 

 "Commitment"
Tuesday, February 19
Humility, as a value and virtue, is one that often gets overlooked, perhaps due to its inherent nature. Many religious texts refer to humility, however in humanist terms, where would humility fit in? Can one learn humility, to be humble? What does humility mean and why is it a desirable virtue? Is it culturally defined and oriented?   The concept of commitment is an interesting area of inquiry, as it binds people to something and yet isn’t necessarily a legal contract. The notion of willingness and desire to be bound to something also becomes part of this picture. What is the basis of this agreement? Is it a reciprocal relationship? What is the relationship between commitments and responsibilities? Do we choose our commitments freely?

Dinner-discussion hosted by Gale Prawda, Ph.D.
