Exploratory Topic on Stoicism presented by Mikal Tyger Magnanimus Schintzius, The Brave
What is stoicism? Stoic logic is, in all essentials, the logic of Aristotle. Tothis, however, they added a theory, peculiar to themselves, of the origin of knowledge and the criterion of truth. All knowledge, they said, enters the mind through the senses. The mind is a blank slate, upon which sense-impressions are inscribed. It may have a certain activity of its own, but this activity is confined exclusively to materials supplied by the physical organs of sense. This theory stands, of course, in sheer opposition to the idealism of Plato, for whom the mind alone was the source of knowledge, the senses being the sources of all illusion and error. The Stoics denied the metaphysical reality of concepts. Concepts are merely ideas in the mind, abstracted from particulars, and have no reality outside consciousness.

8:30 p.m. — Exploratory Topic on Stoicism
Like sharing food and wine, philosophy is also about sharing our love for wisdom – to ultimately get us to a better place. Let’s pool our brilliant minds together and discuss ways on how to help plant the seeds of freedom in our community.
9:30 p.m. — Devil’s Advocate
Do you have questions about how a free and voluntary society would work in the absence of a state monopoly on roads, law, security, currency, first-class mail, or in the tax-farm of Virginia, distilled spirits? Perhaps you would like to sharpen your argumentation style against the logical fallacies of both left and right wing politics? Then this is definitely the place to be in order to develop and improve your art of rhetoric.
10:00 p.m. — Shock Therapy After Party
