Invitation to join Reading Club of Philosophy Books
To Whom: To those indulged in reading...
To those who cannot image a leisure time without a nose stuck in the book...
To those courageous ones to open a page of philosophical book....
Organizer: Daria Lebedieva, PhD in philosophy, lecturer and freelance activist of Wikipedia group Gender Inequality Gap, above all a newcomer in Älmhult, mom of two kids, encourage the interested ones in completing a reading list of philosophical books and starting Reading Club. Daria aims to popularize the interst to philosophy via running a reading club.
Purposes: We will learn that via reading one book -for instance Plato's dialogue Euthyphro- one can touch the realm of philosophy. We will assure that reading is not merely a scanning the pages. We will learn not to avoid the ‘’difficult ‘’ places in a chosen philosophical book. We will get across with the art of discussing and reconstructing philosopher’s ideas with adding own layers of interpretations. Finally, we will understand that reading philosophy is a constant rereading and getting inspiration.
Beginning: we will set a format (one book per month, two meetings per month).
