The Big Question: ‘Are You in the Matrix?’
Can you trust your senses? How do you know that some evil alien hasn’t stuck a wire into your brain and placed you into a vat of warm goo? That’s the first big question. There will be others.
A team of philosophy majors and graduate students at the University of Missouri–St. Louis has come up with a series called “The Big Question” for further discussion. The sessions are open to the public and involve a free lunch for participants.
The first 2011 BQ, “Are You in the Matrix?”, will be held at 12:30 p.m. Sept. 14 in Century Room C at the Millennium Student Center on UMSL’s North Campus.
Even if you didn’t see the 1999 sci-fi thriller or its sequels, the budding philosophers promise a lively, exciting and informal conversation. Everyone will be heard and respected.
