Liberal Arts Reading Group--October 5

Last week, we read an article from Nautilus magazine entitled Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson's Great Showdown About the Nature of Time . In that article, we encountered philosopher Henri Bergson, who argued that our intuitive notion of time—and not merely Einstein's empirical notion of time—must be taken seriously.

This raised the more general question of whether intuition is a source of sure knowledge. Michael Huemer, in a recent book entitled
Ethical Intuitionism, argues that intuition is a sure source of reliable knowledge in the domain of ethics.

So at reading group this week, let's take a look at the short
preface to his book. We will meet at my Glenview home. Hope to see you there!
