Philosophers' Cafe: Consumerism Friday November 18, 3-4 pm

Consumerism peaks at this time of year. What is it? Is it confined to the economic realm? How does it manifest itself individually, socially, and globally? How pervasive is it and what are its implications? How driven are we as individuals by this cultural ideology and who is to say? If individuals try to transcend it and increase their satisfaction in life, they would need something to supplant it. What might a “balance between consumption and other human pursuits look like” (Amitai Etzioni)?

When: Friday, November 18
•Where: Starbuck’s Cafe
• Time: 3-4 pm
