The Philosopher-Citizen Institute Event Calendar

The Philosopher-Citizen Institute at Pasadena City College cordially invites you to participate in four philosophical discussions about the difficult ethical, informational and emotional challenges we face as citizen decision makers. Each Salon will focus on a different series of challenging ethical questions that have arisen during this semester's Responsible Citizen Seminar at PCC and will feature faculty scholars or outside experts as guest facilitators. The Salon will meet for two Monday evenings from 7 to 10 PM and two Saturday mornings from 10 AM to 1 PM at the Creveling Lounge in the PCC Campus Center Building (located in the northwest area of the campus near Hill & Colorado – see maps on our web site). Some campus parking is available in Hill Street lots ($1.00 permit). Salons are open to the public and free of charge. Light refreshments will be served.

The program is as follows:

Note: We will be presenting a somewhat rare opportunity to examine both sides of issues through a careful, slower philosophical approach. Our purpose is not to advocate one side or the other, but rather to provide members of the community with an opportunity to examine some of the deeper ethical questions that most of us don't have time to look at in our busy and fragmented lives. Sometimes, this slower approach can be frustrating - we never seem to actually finish the discussions that we start, and often, people may feel strong emotional responses that they may not be able to express. But from our previous experience, we can pretty much guarantee that the salon will never be boring.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of The Morris Smith Foundation, The PCC Associated Students, & The PCC Flea Market Board.
