Henry David Thoreau, ‘Where I Lived, and What I Lived for’
Wednesday 1 December from 5-6.30pm in ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus
This Wednesday 1 December from 5-6.30pm in room ib3.307 on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus the Deakin Philosophical Society will meet to discuss the second chapter of Henry David Thoreau's Walden entitled ‘Where I Lived, and What I Lived for’. Tim Phillips will introduce the reading.
You can access the chapter online via the Thoreau e-server. There is also a PDF copy available on the Deakin Philosophical Society website: deakinphilosophicalsociety.com/texts/thoreau/walden2.pdf
The Thoreau chapter ties in (loosely) with the Sam Harris lecture from last week under the topic ‘Responses to technological and scientific advance’. Next week we'll discuss CP Snow's 1959 ‘Two Cultures’ lecture to bring it all together.
President, Deakin Philosophical Society.
