A guided dialogue hosted by the Greater Philadelphia Thinking Society (GPTS) and the Philadelphia Ethical Society.  Join CJ Fearnley and Hugh Taft-Morales for this free event open to all.

We are social creatures who develop ethical ideals that guide our behavior, but we are also often ignorant and make mistakes. Should we love and value everyone, even those who have done evil?  Should we love and value the good while reproaching and condemning the bad? Can our minds simultaneously hold these two opposite judgments of the same person? How do we deal with this duality of our nature? 

Come and join us as we discuss how we handle the fact that human beings have strengths and weaknesses. There will be complementary light refreshments.
