Topic: Why all the anger?
The problem of being right all the time

Looking into two traditions that teach liberation from ideology: Luce Irigaray, a French feminist philosopher, and Nagarjuna Bodhisattva, a Buddhist scholar-practitioner. One frees us from the dominant culture; the other from the need for any ideology at all. Both thinkers help us free ourselves from a modern sense of tribalism where we identify with a particular group and fear the other.

For maximum fun, please bring along a quick wit and a wicked sense of humor.
