Philosophy Café 

A monthly discussion about things philosophic.

Join us for the next meeting on Monday evening, May 10th at 5:00. The topic is: Philosophy of the bicycle: A strange topic, you might say. The twentieth and twenty-first century human society has a deep connection with the bicycle, more so perhaps in other countries. It is one of the first artifacts in an individual human's life symbolizing the passage from infancy to young childhood. Who doesn't remember their first bicycle? Bicycles are transportation, freedom, balance, exercise, danger, two gyroscopes, toys, machines, circus props, and athletic equipment. We'll discuss the role they play in our lives, the things that they symbolize, and the joy that they bring us.

This will be a remote discussion using Zoom Meeting, and to join the discussion, please register by filling out the registration form. After you register, you’ll get an email with instructions on how to join the meeting.
