Topic: Heraclitus, the pre-Stoic philosopher who inspired Marcus Aurelius

Heraclitus was one of the most interesting, and puzzling, of the pre-Socratic philosophers. He is famous, among other things, for saying that we never step into the same river twice. He was a major influence on the Stoics, and particularly Marcus Aurelius. Let's explore Heraclitus' notion of the Logos, as well as his "process metaphysics" and the implications they have for modern ethics.

What does one do when there’s no clearly defined ethical road to take? This program features speakers from a variety of backgrounds — medicine, law, business, science, education, the arts, social work, etc. — who share their experience and knowledge of ethical issues in those fields. Monthly, 1st Monday.

Are religions ethical? What kind of ethics (if any) do religions teach? What makes a particular theology ethical - or not? How are theologies interpreted in congregations? What core values hold congregations together? What role does a clergy leader play? What are the responsibilities of a congregation towards its clergy and of clergy to the congregation? We'll explore these and other questions with someone who grew up in a Catholic congregation, raised her children in the Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture, and has served the Long Island and New York Societies as clergy leader.

Anne holds a Doctor of Ministry degree in pastoral care and counseling from Hebrew Union College and is the Humanist Chaplain at New York University and Columbia University.
