PPE for PEOPLE
Politics, Philosophy, Economics: PPE for PEOPLE (new)
THCC Tuesdays 1000-1200 (3 sessions: 2nd Oct, 6th Nov, 4th Dec)
Convener: Roger Hurley
Maximum: 30 This is a programme for everyone - a programme which seeks to aid our approach to meeting the challenge of modernity. Most of us are interested in PPE but would not necessarily use those letters to summarise the focus of their attention.
The programme is participative: short and specific on exposition, heavy on discussion of no particular political direction. People will have the opportunity to air their views and concerns in a safe and supportive environment convened by highly experienced facilitators.
It is an opportunity for people to challenge assumptions and preconceived notions (theirs, other’s and those of the wider world) and seek insights (new learning) that throw light on our deeper, and possibly unformed, thoughts. As A.C. Grayling put it to Shri Sharma in U3A Sources (Summer 2018) there is a reward for “endeavouring to make sense of things rationally, creatively and sensibly”.
The contrast of the slowness of human change with the speed of technological advances may be one expression of the challenge of modernity. Perhaps, then, it is our responsibility to seek to recalibrate that which is of value to society at large.
If this of interest then it is important to commit to the three sessions. Anyone who wants to discover more about the course than is written here should contact the convener who will welcome any enquiries.
