This Week at Philosophy Club: Donn Weinholtz on 'Shared Security'
Philosophy Club Discussion on "Shared Security"
Time and Place: Thursday, Sept. 19, 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. in Auerbach 422
Topic: "Shared Security: Reimagining U.S. Foreign Policy"
This week, Professor of Educational Leadership Donn Weinholtz will discuss the notion of "shared security" — that security ought to be seen not as a competitive concern dividing nations, but as a cooperative concern uniting nations into a genuine world community.
In advance of the discussion, you are invited to visit http://sharedsecurity.wordpress.com/, or read “Shared Security: Reimagining U.S. Foreign Policy,” a working paper of the American Friends Service Committee and the Friends Committee on National Legislation.
The University of Hartford Philosophy Club meets every Thursday during the fall and spring semesters — with the exception of the first Thursday of each semester — from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. in 422 Auerbach Hall.
The club has an informal, jovial atmosphere. It is a place where students, professors, and people from the community at large meet as peers. Sometimes presentations are given, followed by discussion. Other times, topics are hashed out by the whole group.
Presenters may be students, professors, or people from the community. Anyone can offer to present a topic. The mode of presentation may be as formal or informal as the presenter chooses. Bring friends. Suggest topics and activities. Take over the club! It belongs to you! Food and drink are served. Come and go as you wish.
