Our guest speaker will be Kyle Robertson, Asst. Dir., Center for Public Philosophy and Lecturer in Philosophy at UCSC. He'll speak about the joys and challenges of philosophical inquiry in unusual spaces. Kyle believes that philosophy is a fundamental human activity, and that we should practice it in a variety of contexts outside of the University classroom. He will use his experiences working with elementary schoolchildren and inmates at San Quentin State Prison to illustrate his arguments.

Richard is hosting, Raji is doing the reading, Ben is giving "Doing My Best," and we'll be singing "Africa" (Toto), "I Can See Clearly Now" (Johnny Nash), and "September" (Earth, Wind & Fire).
