Thursday Lecture Series: Wit & Wisdom

Is Poetry a Way of Thinking?

It’s said a picture is worth a thousand words, but a poem can paint a thousand pictures with just a few words. How can this be? This discussion will consider what poetry is and how this language can utilize words and imagination. Even more, it will investigate how it’s possible for poetry, with its extraordinary and idiosyncratic use of language, to have such immense power over the way we encounter and feel the world.

Join Philosofarian tonight for a philosophical look at philosophy. Wit & Wisdom at 6pm in the Lovell Showroom for the Thursday night lecture. All ages are welcome, with food and beverages available through the Lovell Taproom. Never a cover.

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