from Lawrence, Sunday PhiloMadrid meeting: The disadvantages of being different

Dear friends,

This Sunday we are discussing: the disadvantages of being different.

Many people have the impression that philosophy is about irrelevant and non consequential issues:
maybe even idealistic romanticism. On the contrary philosophy is about issues that concern the
basics of being a human being: i.e. life and the art of living.

Who doesn't remember being bullied, of bullying, at school peers who maybe had some peculiarities or
were not as mean and aggressive as the rest of us? But one of the questions for us is whether being
different automatically causes disadvantages?

In the meantime I hope to see you Sunday,

Best Lawrence
