Forum: Naturalistic Transcendentalism (Dr. Peter Bishop)

When: Sunday, July 16 2017 @ 11:00 AM - - 12:15PM
Where: Humanist House
1180 Coleman Ave.
San Jose, CA 95110
Description: Here is a summary from Dr. Bishop:

This is a philosophy that ties together everything that I have been discovering from a philosophical point of view, and published in my first peer-reviewed journal article of the same name in the Essays in the Philosophy of Humanism.

I am continuing to make headway on this work, but I will present the fundamental point of view: starting from the Transcendentalism of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was interested in the human capacity for intuition and other religious experiences, such as revelations, but looking at this from the 21st century and a 21st century naturalism. There are three major areas of philosophy that are ripe for advance with such a point of view, and I lay out the three areas in my talk.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
