Profs & Pints: The Love Lecture
Profs and Pints presents: "The Love Lecture," with Laura Papish, assistant professor of philosophy at George Washington University and teacher of a seminar on the philosophy of love, sex, and friendship.

Who wrote the book of love? Why does love have to be so sad? Is it a thin line between love and hate? On a more serious note, how does our society's understanding of love and romantic love shape our experience of it? Why do we think of love as mysterious and irrational? Do those we love need to be lovable? Is love necessarily a morally good thing, or can it actually make it harder for us to be good?

Hear such questions fielded by Laura Papish, assistant professor of philosophy at George Washington University and teacher of a seminar on the philosophy of love, sex, and friendship. She'll start by examining how ancient Greeks thought about erotic love and move on from there, looking at how love is envisioned in classic novels, recent films, and pop culture.  She'll also discuss the origins of the idea that people have a soul mate and how some have tried to criticize or transform love.  Together, we'll explore different possibilities for love and those mysteries about it that have left more than a few of us feeling befuddled.

Feel free to show up if you are lovelorn, love-stricken, or just love to hear interesting conversation over good food and good beer. (Advance tickets: $12. Doors: $15, save $2 with a student ID. Listed time is for doors. Talk starts 30 minutes later. Please allow yourself time to place any orders and get seated and settled in.)
