Food for Thought…

You are cordially invited to attend an evening dinner extension of the Café Philosophique. If you, like myself and many others I have spoken to, leave the Saturday discussions with a very real appetite, both physical and mental, then this is the perfect opportunity to satisfy both.

The enriching experience of the café philosophique, in the context of a large group, is the broad diversity of views and ideas exposed during those sessions. However, it is difficult to achieve continuity and focus within that large open forum and this is the reason the dinner has been arranged.

With a smaller group there is the opportunity to get a closer look at particular aspects of a subject in much greater depth. Gale proposes the following subjects for the next two upcoming dinners:

 

"Integrity" Saturday, January 26, 2002

Integrity has become the ethical buzzword of the day in the corporate world. Is it only to be found in this context, or is it a certain benchmark value that is used to model oneself after? When choosing friends and founding friendships is the person’s integrity taken into consideration? If so, what is that is taken into consideration. What is the relationship between integrity and ethics?

 

"Science & Ethics" Saturday, February 23, 2002

Does science (scientific research) search for "truth"? How does it carry out this search? What are the principles behind it? Does science only deal with the physical world? (the physiology of the human being?; human sciences : psychology, sociology, etc.?) Does ethics seek the "truth" vis a vis human experiences? What is the moral structure in which ethical analysis can be carried out? What is its basis facts or values, how are these values derived at/discovered? Are these values universal? or relative to the socio-culture they’re found in? When we say someone is "realistic" and someone is "idealistic" what is being said?

 

For those wishing to attend, a participation fee of £15 will be payable in advance or upon your arrival to cover the cost of fees and expenses. Food and drinks will be at one’s own discretion, from the restaurant’s main evening menu at standard prices.
