Bio: Jacob Baker is a Doctoral Candidate in Philosophy of Religion and Theology at Claremont Graduate University. He also teaches Philosophy at Utah Valley University.
This event is organized by Books & Bridges -- a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
This event is made possible with support from Books & Bridges, Weller Book Works, and Utah Humanities.
