The Value of Other Cultures
October 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society and the Philadelphia Ethical Society and hosted by C.J. Fearnley and Hugh Taft-Morales.
What is culture? What makes other cultures different from ours? What is the value of other cultures? Are they just quaint exotic peoples destined to fade away, eclipsed by the modern world? Or do they offer us wisdom, hope and inspiration? How can we see the value of other cultures? How do they enrich our collective heritage?
Inspired by the profound, poignant 2009 Massey Lecture given by Wade Davis. His lectures were published as the book The Wayfinders: Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the modern World.
Free and open to all. Light refreshments served.
