For our February meeting we welcome Dr. Christopher DiCarlo. Dr. DiCarlo is a philosopher, educator, speaker and author. He is the Ethics Chair for the Canadian Mental Health Association and a lifetime member of Humanist Canada. As an educator, Christopher currently teaches in the Department of Biology at the University of Toronto Mississauga and at The Life Institute at Toronto Metropolitan University.
Dr. DiCarlo has been invited to speak at numerous national and international conferences in the past and has won several awards including TV Ontario’s ‘Big Ideas’ Best Lecturer in Ontario Award and Canada’s Humanist of the Year. Finally, he is the author of several books including his best-seller: How to Become a Really Good Pain in the Ass: A Critical Thinker’s Guide to Asking the Right Questions and his latest: So You Think You Can Think? Tools for Intelligent Conversations and Getting Along.
Christopher has presented to us before, notably about “Ethics, Good vs Evil”, and his presentation to us at this meeting will be on ‘The Abridged History of Love’. How was the concept of ‘love’ defined, used, and celebrated throughout recorded time (and potentially, pre-recorded time)? During this festive season of St. Valentine’s – when “love is in the air” – let’s consider the nature of this most perplexing, yet wondrous of human emotions.
