Our beliefs shape our character and determine our actions; yet, without much thought, we adopt some of our beliefs rashly and some we inherit from others. Living with faulty beliefs can prevent us from achieving our individual goals and can even endanger us as individuals and as a society. Philosophers do not aim to tell anyone what they should believe, but philosophers do explore and develop methods for subjecting beliefs to rational scrutiny. This special series of three Philosophy for Lunch sessions will focus on strategies we can all employ to help us form beliefs in a way that is reasonable and responsible.

Everyone is welcome! No preparation or previous knowledge is required.

When: Thursdays – September 24, October 1, and October 8 from 11:30 a.m.–12:30p.m.

Where: Join via Zoom – The same link will be used for all three sessions.
