Jan 26: Is there Meaning to Life?

The debate live from Convocation Hall

0126 Is There Meaning to LifeJoin us as we hear a provocative discussion between three scholars as they offer their insights into this timeless question. This event is part of the Religion and Society Series hosted by Wycliffe College.

On Friday, January 26th from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Convocation Hall we welcome philosopher and author Dr. Rebecca Goldstein, philosopher William Lane Craig, and psychology professor Dr. Jordan Peterson for what will be an exciting two hours of dialogue, moderated by journalist Karen Stiller.

Dr. Rebecca Newberger Goldstein is a philosopher who is fascinated by how philosophy operates and how it relates to our physical, moral, and spiritual realms. She has written a number of novels including The Mind-Body Problem and Thirty-Six Arguments for the Existence of God: A Work of Fiction.

William Lane Craig is Research Professor of Philosophy at Talbot School of Theology and Professor of Philosophy at Houston Baptist University. He is a Christian apologist who seeks to justify Christian teachings and examine how biblical truths can be applied to current issues.

Dr. Jordan Peterson is a professor of psychology and a culture critic at the University of Toronto, with a particular interest in the psychology of religious and ideological belief. He was in the news recently due to a kerfuffle over gendered pronouns.

St. John’s York Mills is pleased to be showing the debate live on screen in the Garnsworthy room. The doors open at 7:00, and the discussion on screen gets underway at 7:30 p.m. Admission is free and all are welcome – free-will donations will be gratefully accepted.
