  • The On Being Dinners 5:00pm - 6:00pm: The On Being Dinners: “Strong Back, Soft Front, Wild Heart”with Brené Brown
    Listen to an On Being podcast by Krista Tippett beforehand, and then gather to discuss “the big questions” raised over dinner. Hilary Martin Himan from the Office of Spiritual Life will facilitate. Students, staff, and faculty are all invited for a small table discussion at the Bon (Fields Dining Hall) from 5-6pm.

    On Wed. Feb. 19 we’ll discuss questions raised by Krista Tippett’s interview titled “Strong Back, Soft Front, Wild Heart” with Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston.

    From Krista Tippet at www.onbeing.org:
    “Brené Brown says our belonging to each other can’t be lost, but it can be forgotten. Her research has reminded the world in recent years of the uncomfortable, life-giving link between vulnerability and courage. Now she’s turning her attention to how we walked into the crisis of our life together and how we can move beyond it: with strong backs, soft fronts, and wild hearts.”

    Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, where she holds the Huffington Foundation-Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work. Her books include The Gifts of Imperfection, Braving the Wilderness, and, most recently, Dare to Lead.

  • The On Being Dinners 5:00pm - 6:00pm: The On Being Dinners: “Tending Joy and Practicing Delight” with Ross Gay
    Listen to an On Being podcast by Krista Tippett beforehand, and then gather to discuss “the big questions” raised over dinner. Hilary Martin Himan from the Office of Spiritual Life will facilitate. Students, staff, and faculty are all invited for a small table discussion at the Bon (Fields Dining Hall) from 5-6pm.

    On Wed. March 4 we’ll discuss questions raised by Krista Tippett’s interview titled “Tending Joy and Practicing Delight” with Ross Gay.

    From Krista Tippet at www.onbeing.org:
    “There is a question floating around the world right now: “How can we be joyful in a moment like this?” To which writer Ross Gay responds: “How can we not be joyful, especially in a moment like this?” He says joy has nothing to do with ease and “everything to do with the fact that we’re all going to die.” The ephemeral nature of our being allows him to find delight in all sorts of places (especially his community garden). To be with Ross Gay is to train your gaze to see the wonderful alongside the terrible, to attend to and meditate on what you love, even in the work of justice.”

    Ross Gay is a writer and a professor of English at Indiana University Bloomington. His books include the poetry collection Catalog of Unabashed Gratitude, winner of the 2016 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award, and a book of essays, The Book of Delights. He is a board member of the Bloomington Community Orchard and a co-founder of The Tenderness Project.

  • 3:30pm: “Can a Tree be Creative?” by Phillip Barron (Lewis & Clark College)
    Art critic Rudolf Arnheim once claimed that to be creative is a fundamental need of all living organisms. He gave the example of a tree reaching for sunlight, spreading its branches in an optimal pattern. “The tree is acting creatively, not just metaphorically—it is the real thing,” he wrote in the British Journal of Aesthetics. Philosophers pounced. In The Philosophy of Creativity, Berys Gaut asserts that creativity requires agency, and a tree—lacking desires, beliefs, and other intentional states—does not qualify as an agent. Drawing on contemporary research into intelligence, tree biology, and personal identity, I sketch a defense of Arnheim’s claim and give an account of how trees can be creative.
