Secularism”, Thursday, Sept. 28, 2006



Secularism as practiced in education, has developed as a strong component of critical thinking in education. We see its roots in the Renaissance period (in the west) whereby there has been a serious effort in the separation of church and state. What is the nature of a secular education and why is it important? If there isn’t a separation between church and state, what are the consequences in our lives and how we perceive the world? Is this practice culturally defined?

We’ll take a closer look at what secularism means and what is its impact in our daily lives.



Space” Tuesday, Oct. 24



Space as time is one of the most essential elements in considering and interpreting the world we live in. We use this notion to understand the universe, the planet earth and our own personal spheres. Is there a certain necessity for spatial dimensions, how we occupy it, how we defend it, how we live it? This subject can be viewed from many perspectives : personal space as in communication and necessary distance between subjects, social groups as in defining their identities, territorial boundaries between societies, planetary dimensions between worlds. What impact does space have on human existence in its many aspects?
