Thursday Talks: Wit & Wisdom

Is Progress a Good Thing?

Moderator: Seth Tichenor

Synopsis: The pursuit of progress has brought a degree of freedom, security, comfort, and understanding to modern life that our ancestors could hardly have imagined. And yet, the pursuit of this ideal has also brought with it problems and threats to our existence – nuclear weapons, climate change, and mass extinctions, just to name a few. Why does progress seem to lead to as many problems as it does solutions? And, can progress be recast for the 21st Century?

Wit & Wisdom is brought to you every 4th Thursday of the month by Philosofarian. Doors to the Lovell Showroom open at 6pm. Food & beverages are available through the Taproom. All ages are welcome and never a cover.

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