The Other Night School: Rethinking Work
Rethinking Work with Dr. Janet Donohoe and Dr. John V. Garner
Wednesday, May 3rd at 6pm
Hills & Hamlets Bookshop in The Textile Lofts
What is the purpose of work? What makes a life of work go well or go badly? These questions puzzled the ancients and yet they are still with us today. Join us as we explore both ancient and modern efforts to discern whether we humans work only because we have biological needs, whether certain traps such as greed and consumerism are avoidable, and whether a life of work has a higher purpose. If you find that your work either brings you joy or infuriates you (or both), then come join us as we work together through these problems!
