Alain de Botton, The Limits of Freedom

The Limits of Freedom
Wednesday, March 31st
ib3.307 from 4-5.30pm

The Deakin Philosophical Society this week will discuss a brief article by Alain de Botton, ‘The Limits of Freedom’. The article is one in a series published in the UK Guardian on the topic of citizen ethics. Wednesday's meeting will complete our discussion of civil liberties and conceptions of liberty.

I would like to thank Kristian Schutz for introducing the articles last week and for ensuring that a lively discussion ensued.

There will be no meeting on Wednesday, April 7 due to the intra-trimester or Easter break. When we reconvene on April 14 we'll discuss a piece by Dr Tamas Pataki, who will be speaking on the topic of religion and violence at Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus on Thursday, April 15.

Philosophy Café

Wednesday, March 31 is also Philosophy Café night.

Dr Hans Baer, Senior Lecturer in the School of Philosophy, Anthropology, and Social Inquiry, presents ‘Production and Consumption as Sources of Global Warming’.

See you Wednesday,

Dylan Nickelson,
President, Deakin Philosophical Society.
