We are against hate which targets continually marginalized people, no matter if they are Asian, Asian-American, Pacific Islanders, Black, Indigenous, people of color, and LGBTQ+ identifying. We support movements for reform, protest, and equality. A collection of resources and organizations working toward these efforts, and those which offer support, can be found here.

We will continue to amplify marginalized voices, and welcome all, their ideas, their events, and their words. Our words here are not enough, but we wanted to say we support you and will continue to do so through our actions.

An additional list of support and relief funds can be found here.

Delve Readers Seminar: Søren Kierkegaard: What is Our Situation?

March 14 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

$240
Online, N/A, Portland, OR 97207

In the six meetings of our Delve seminar we will read selections from books by Søren Kierkegaard (1813–1855), a philosopher of the highest importance and influence in general philosophy, moral philosophy, and religious thought. In Western philosophy, he stands with Plato and Nietzsche alone as a literary stylist of the greatest genius.

The most familiar characterization of Kierkegaard is that he is the founder of existentialism. In this seminar we will try as best we can to look at him with fresh eyes. Most of us have never met a person like him. We’ve known lots of rebels, and lots of amazingly human and loving persons, lots of intense cranks and some brilliant conversationalists, and probably a few geniuses. But a person who combines all these with an ability to pull your mind and heart through the most revealing and profound ideas, dancing ahead as we run to keep up, is indeed rare.

Texts:
The Essential Kiekegaard, edited by Howard V. Hong and Edna H. Hong (Princeton: Princeton University Press, 2000)

March 14 – April 25, 2021 (no meeting April 11)
Sundays, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. (six sessions)

Bennett Gilbert teaches history and philosophy at Portland State University. He is the author of A Personalist Philosophy of History.
