Camden Philosophical Society

Tuesday, June 22, 2021 @ 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

The Camden Philosophical Society at its next session, on Tuesday, June 22, will discuss the work of contemporary German philosopher Jurgen Habermas as an extension of recent sessions examining concepts of freedom developed by Emanuel Kant, Isaiah Berlin, Hannah Arendt and others. The session will be led by Tony Stigliano, a philosophy professor living in California who has recently been participating in our group via Zoom.

This month’s readings are an essay outlining the major elements of Habermas’ thought, provided by Tony, and a short essay by Habermas himself on the Public Sphere. The “odt” open-access extension to the Philosophy of Habermas file may require a few extra clicks to open but should cause no problems otherwise.

All are welcome to participate in the online discussion via Zoom. Email sarahmiller@usa.net if you wish to attend via Zoom. You will receive an invitation on the morning of the meeting.  Click on the “Join Zoom Meeting” link in that invitation at the time of the event. The Society is unable to return to primarily in-person meetings until the Camden Public Library reopens for such gatherings. Even then, it is our intention to continue to provide access to people in other locations, through Zoom or some other means.
