(CANCELLED)Thursday Talks: Wit & Wisdom


Wit & Wisdom: Why Do We Love Our Friends?

Presented by Seth Tichenor

We all know how important our friends are to us, but this isn’t half of it. It’s not just that we enjoy our friends, or that they’re are integral to our everyday lives.  We will make decisions and take actions that are sometimes against our own interests and even our values for the sake of our friends. Indeed It’s been said that a friend is “another self”. But what does all this mean? Are our friends fundamentally important to happiness? Are there different kinds of “friends”, and do they mean different things to us? Why do we weigh and value the unique moral, psychological, and even spiritual obligations to friends in the way that we do, and how might this be connected to our own sense of self?

Wit & Wisdom is brought to you by Philosofarian every 2nd Thursday of the month. Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6 pm, with food & beverages available via the Taproom window. All ages welcome and never a cover!

WHERE: Lovell Showroom, 14th & Duane Street Astoria, Oregon 97103 Map
