1/8: There is still time to register for St. John's College Community Seminars

(SANTA FE, NM) Community Seminars are special opportunities for community members to read and discuss seminal works in the same unique manner as our students. Seminars are discussion-based and small in size in order to ensure spirited dialogue. There are topics to pique every interest, and for many participants the discussion-based learning model is an entirely new experience. Please call 505-984-6117 to register for any of the seminars.

Heidegger’s philosophy of being leads us directly to another classical problem that he discusses less openly: causation.
