Back by popular demand, Richard Carrier will be speaking on Polyamory, Kink, and Philosophy.
Specific topics include:
- What should philosophy have to say about ethical non-monogamy and/or kink?
- What use does it have for those pursuing it?
- How can ordinary people become good philosophers? And how can philosophy help them become better non-monogamists and explorers of kink?
From the epistemology of consent to the metaphysics of love and sex to, of course, moral theory, even politics and aesthetics, philosophy has a lot to do with polyamory and other modes of ethical non-monogamy and kink.
Richard Carrier (with a Ph.D. in history of philosophy from Columbia University, and several publications in contemporary philosophy) will discuss why philosophy is useful, and how to make the best use of it, in non-monogamous relationships.

- Doors open at 6:30 pm
