R: Take the Road More Traveled

Will it make all the difference? Modern society celebrates the individual; it promotes the idea that happiness is the result of choosing an original path. Yet is originality a presupposition to creativity, happiness, and individuality? Or is it the product of synthesizing existing ideas in new ways? 

What is the relationship between originality and objective truth? Can persons make genuinely original decisions while respecting a moral law, or do these norms require uniformity of action and thought?

We will be meeting Friday October 14th at 7:30 p.m. in the Berkeley Mendenhall Room with our alumni to debate originality and related matters. All are welcome!
