WONDER SESSION ON “TRUTH”, 17:00, Common Room

Join Extra Muros for our third Wonder Session as we delve into the profound question posed by Pilate: “‘Truth?’ said Pilate ‘What is that?’; and with that he went out again to the Jews and said, ‘I find no case against him’” (John 18:38). Inspired by this inquiry, we’ll explore the concept of truth in our contemporary world, navigating through the complexities of ‘post-truth’ culture, tribalism, pluralism, and relativism.

Featuring guest speakers Dr. Herman de Regt and Fr. Michiel Peeters, we’ll contemplate the essence of truth through philosophical lenses. Fr. Michiel Peeters draws from Gadamer’s perspective, reflecting on the intersection of truth and human experience, while Herman shares insights from Charles Sanders Peirce’s exploration of truth in scientific investigation.

After our discussion, join us for drinks at Esplanade as we continue the conversation. Don’t miss this thought-provoking event that promises to challenge your perceptions and ignite intellectual curiosity.
