Philosophy Cafe at Cape Breton University

The Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Cape Breton University is launching its Philosophy Café on Friday, November 12 from 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at The Pit Lounge. The Café, which will take place every second week, is open to the university community and the general public.

“Topics tend to be topical, so some issue of current interest which has a philosophical, moral or social dimension,” says Dr. Andrew Reynolds, Associate Professor of Philosophy, School of Arts and Social Sciences, Cape Breton University. “But more traditional topics may also be dealt with, for example capitalism vs. socialism as the appropriate economic model for society.”

Stephen Hawking has recently claimed that science can account for why the universe exists without recourse to the notion of God, leading some to ask: Are Science and Religion Compatible or Essentially at Odds? This discussion will be led by Dr. Andrew Reynolds.
