We will explore how the Enlightenment fantasies of pure rationality, endless progress and human power and perfectibility set the stage for the world we live in. For better or worse. Are we happier, healthier, or better off in any ways because of these ideals? Are there limits to what rationality can do for us? Is there a better way? “Reason's last step is the recognition that there are an infinite number of things which are beyond it.” ― Blaise Pascal
Trees, ping pong, checkers, grass to lie in, fresh air, and the occasional passing freight train. Good food for meat eaters, veggies and vegans. Beer, sangria, fancy sodas and wine. Classes with Think Olio, a lovely Sunday afternoon dance, moonlit movies and regular ping pong tourneys.
Kids can always run free, and dogs are always allowed on a leash.
The good old days are Nowadays.
