Night School for Deeper Learning with the Author of the Book of Ecclesiastes (Series 2, Session 1)
September 19, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
This is an adventurous exercise of greater depth and reflectivity than is normal for most people. Each of the Tuesday evenings (the 3rd Tuesday of each month), Fr. Ganz welcomes into our gathering each time a profound thinker, explorer, philosopher, painter, poet, theologian or mystic from the ancient or nearer past. For example, he may invite Aristotle (4th century BCE) to attend, and through some short and penetrating texts from his writings to give us his best thoughts on friendship. This monthly habit offered by the Faber Institute is meant to be enjoyable, startling at times (surprised by the wisdom we have available to us if we know how to read such authors), and to be an experience of deep thought skillfully invited and engagingly presented.
For the 1st Night School of Series II, Fr. Ganz welcomes into our gathering the author of the book of Ecclesiastes and the question: “What kind of person is it most realistic to be? Cynic? Materialist? Joyous?”
