Critically Thinking About Important Issues
In this lecture series, Dr. Christopher DiCarlo – a philosopher, author and educator – will examine and discuss a wide variety of topics dealing with some of the most important issues that face us today. These will be examined through the lens of Critical Thinking and range from concepts of ethics and love to the social and political issues of abortion and euthanasia. Other topics will include the God of Spinoza and Einstein, evolution versus creationism, and how to deal with misinformation, disinformation and conspiracy theories.
Great Modern Architects
Learn about the lives and works of eight of the West’s most innovative architects of the past 100 years, concentrating on the post‑1960 era. We’ll examine the unique buildings of Spain’s Gaudì, the humanistic works of Finland’s Aalto, the creativity of Canada’s Erickson, the futuristic designs of Britain’s Hadid, and more. You’ll learn about architects not well known outside the design community, including Swiss partners Herzog and de Meuron. While viewing hundreds of images, see if you agree with the accolades these remarkable architects have received.
