  • Downtown Immortality Lecture Series: "TWO ANCIENT PHILOSOPHERS ON WHY DEATH IS NO EVIL"

    What happens to us after we die? The ancient philosopher Plato claims that our soul is immortal and after death, undergoes reward or punishment, followed by reincarnation. Another ancient philosopher, Epicurus, argues that our soul disperses at death, extinguishing our consciousness. Yet neither philosopher thinks that death is to be feared, and both argue that understanding death gives us reason to live a philosophical life in the present. Philosophy professor Rachana Kamtekar explains how Plato and Epicurus came to such similar conclusions from very different starting points and explores the relevance of their views for us today.

  • Downtown Lecture Series: The Histories and Mysteries of Heaven

    Many people imagine heaven as a spectacularly beautiful place somewhere “up there” where God resides and where loved ones are finally and eternally united. How did the hope for a blessed afterlife arise and evolve in Western religions? Why did the hope for a heavenly afterlife become so powerful? And what do our images of the afterlife reveal about our deepest fears and highest hopes as humans today? In this lecture, Professor Wright will address these and other questions related to the power of afterlife beliefs and images of heaven. He will also explore possibilities for future images of the afterlife in light of recent advances in technology and modern science.

  • Westmont Downtown Lecture: Donald Patterson, "Should We Hide from Big Data?"

    In a world which is increasingly under surveillance and digital control, an enormous amount of data gets collected. This “Big Data” isn’t just a benign repository of information, however. It becomes the basis for making decisions and monitoring and assessing individuals and groups. People with agendas choose which data is worth saving, which colors the pictures they subsequently form about our world. In this talk, Professor Patterson will walk through several examples of ways of thinking about surveillance and control. He’ll present ways in which people on the cutting edge of technology have responded to protest and protect their privacy and yet practically still participate in the modern world. Finally, he’ll discuss when, if ever, it’s OK to lie to the databases that are trying to form a...

  • Downtown Lecture Series: Edible Roman Empire

    What lessons can we learn about food and foodways from the Roman Empire? A surprising amount. The Roman Empire encompassed some 50-60 million people, transforming the lives of its conquered populations. Wheat, olive oil, wine, and fish paste were mass-produced and transported thousands of miles, undercutting local food traditions. Agribusiness and monoculture supplanted independent farmers. Crops were harvested unsustainably. But at the same time many people benefited from greater food security than ever before. Who were the winners and losers in this, the first globalized food system?

Join Professor Knecht as we try to make sense of the nominations of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and predict what might happen in November. We will look at how candidates use various campaign strategies to make their way to the White House and consider why those strategies usually don’t matter that much. Indeed, Professor Knecht will argue that the things people tend to focus on—campaign ads, debates, media coverage, issue positions, gaffs, hair— usually have little effect on who becomes the next president.

    Professor Shaun Nichols and his research team spent months exploring attitudes towards death among Hindus and Tibetan Buddhists in India. His exploration was prompted by the philosophical argument that we should not fear the idea of death because there is no enduring self that remains exactly the same even during biological life. At most we (our selves) are a collection of values, convictions, and memories undergoing constant change. From this perspective, the future “you" who dies will not be the same person as “you" today. Because Tibetan Buddhists embrace the concept that there is no enduring self throughout biological life, they should be less afraid of death at the end of biological life. But are they? His findings may surprise you.
