Description:

Join us for a lecture presented by Scott Forschler, PhD, as he explains his view on the origin and justification of moral values.

“Values, and moral values in particular, seem to some to be “unnatural,” and irreconcilable with a naturalistic, scientific worldview. But this is not so. They are created by our animal brains using two fascinating capacities: representation, and recursion.”

Meetings are open to the Public

After the meeting, join us at Vitale’s Restaurant, 834 Leonard NE, Grand Rapids, MI to socialize. View Map
