Crossing Borders – An Evening of Philosophical Discussion

May 13, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm  |  Institute of the Arts and Sciences


Large and small, visible and hidden, borders weave in and out of our lives along varied dimensions. Some we can see, many we cannot. Some we celebrate, others confine us. Some we are aware of, many remain undiscovered. There are political borders and national borders; psychological, social, scientific, and biological borders. What are borders? Can anything be conceived as involving a border? Come think with us on the evening of May 13 at the new Institute of the Arts and Sciences building, designed for vibrant possibility. Choose among rooms with synchronic presentations and performances, led by poets, philosophers, scientists, and artists. Muse with us, ponder with us, and talk with one another, as together each of us travels across, within, and at the borders calling to us on this particular evening.

This event is brought to the public by the Center for Public Philosophy and the Institute of the Arts and Sciences, with support and participation of The Humanities Institute, Cowell College, and the Philosophical Slug Society.

Free and open to the public
