Philosopher’s Circle Meets Tuesday,July 5th

          Logos Books, 513 Second Street, welcomes the Philosopher’s Circle, a group that gathers every first Tuesday to discuss life’s “big” questions, on Tuesday, July 5th from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.

This week’s topic is :

                                                    Being vs. Thinking

                             The Ultimate Existential Question of  “I Am.”

                                     What/Who Pronounces ……”I Am” ?

The statement,  “I Am,” is one of the most fundamental statements of the Human Psyche.

It has a million different insights and avenues attached to it. Please feel free to bring whatever insight you have gathered on this topic. The dialogue will be open to anything anyone wants to express on the topic; this is a dialogue about our essential identity, what we are, in essence, and therefore  one of the most loaded topics we have discussed thusfar.

Some of the many famous insights into the question:

Exodus 3: 14-  And God says,       “I am that I am.”

Descartes:   “I think, therefore I am.”

Sartre:    “The Consciousness that thinks is different than the Consciousness that says, ‘I Am.'”

Tolle:     “Being is underneath it All.”

In addition, we will be investigating two distinct Consciousness energies/patterns that we are able to observe in the Human Mind: the Consciousness that Is, and the Consciousness that Thinks that it Is.  We will also be exploring the history of this question, as it appears in Biblical literature, in Eastern literature (such as the text of the Tao Te Ching), Existential Philosophy, and Modern Spiritual Insight.
