*Also, we want to draw special attention to this Friday's Philosophy Cafe at 1412 Euterpe St (7:30pm), as the subject will be EDUCATION! Topic questions include: What is education? What is being an "educated person" today mean? Have values changed around education? Are there core values which should be bedrock? Is there such a thing as a canon of civilization that should be the subject of all education?
