A Tale of Beatrix Potter
- Sunday, September 18 at 1:30 PM
- Born Helen Beatrix Potter on July 28, 1866, Beatrix Potter is one of the most beloved children's authors and illustrators. Her attention to detail and skill goes far beyond Peter Rabbit & his friends. She produced and copyrighted stuffed toys, developed board games, coloring pages and wallpaper; and her drawings of fungi are still used in instruction and identification texts. A generous supporter of the National Trust, she helped to preserve the landscape and culture of the Lake District, and raised award winning Herdwick Sheep. Like Peter Rabbit, she was devoted to her parents, but had a mind of her own; did not hesitate to squeeze under & around the barriers to keep women out of the world of work & science; and got into her fair share of scrapes with "Gentlemen Gardeners".

Philosophers in the Midst of History
The projects of philosophers do not occur in a historical and cultural vacuum, and understanding the situations they were living in illuminates their philosophical projects and works. This lecture series focuses on examining the historical contexts in which thinkers like Plutarch, Bonaventure, G.W.F. Hegel, and Maurice Blondel were writing in relation to their main ideas.
The lecture series is presented by Greg Sadler and Andi Sciacca of ReasonIO and is recommended for adults and high school students. Each lecture will last about 60 minutes, with time for questions and answers following the lecture.
