easterWhat happens to Philosophy – the love of wisdom – when we approach it as a global quest for shared understanding and harmony?  How has humanity envisioned One World – both cosmologically and geopolitically?  Let’s explore some of the loftiest and deepest insights about Ultimate Reality, Human Fulfillment and Social Justice that are embedded in thought systems from many lands and traditions.  The vision of One World has been evolving steadily over time and space, yielding rich and inspiring mansions of thought and aspiration.  Where has this quest arrived for us today?  Is our overall worldview bleak, promising, or somewhere in between?  An informal lecture-discussion format will help provide spirited group explorations.
