With the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), Hunter College is hosting a series of presentation at Roosevelt House and co-hosting book discussions. We will host a discussion twice this month right here at Ethical NYC. May will focus on philosopher Nietzsche’s “On the Genealogy of Morality” (http://www.inp.uw.edu.pl/mdsie/Political_Thought/GeneologyofMorals.pdf) and will allow participants to consider how moral concepts grow and evolve, not necessarily “‘naturally,” as an extension of or counterpart to biological evolution, but rather as a result of human creativity and cultural interests.

Join is for one of the scheduled discussions on Wednesday, 5/3, 2-4 pm OR Tuesday, 5/9, 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Free
