Provocateurs wanted! Do you enjoy thinking about what others say as much as they enjoy arguing their own views? Langara's Department of Philosophy invites you to attend Philosophers' Jam, a forum for the expression of provocative ideas.
Old Solutions to New Problems: Knowledge, Skepticism, and Modern Media
Speaker: Selman Halabi (Columbia College)
We will take a brief, selective tour through the history of philosophy to identify what I believe to be its most fundamental question – How do our minds relate to the world? Answering this question matters today as much as it did in Plato’s day. I will attempt to illustrate this issue’s importance by applying it to the media we consume.
Selman Halabi is a philosophy instructor at Columbia College.
