Instructor Dr. Henry Aldridge is an Emeritus Professor of Electronic Media and Film Studies at Eastern Michigan University. This study group will meet on Tuesdays, 10-1, from October 23 through November 13. For transportation and parking options, call the OLLI office at (734) 998-9351.

"Travel and Philosophy: OLLI Study Group': Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at U-M (50+).

  community member   < less OLLI Study Group

"…all tourists are dear to Hermes, the god of travel, who is patron also of amiable curiosity and freedom of mind." (Santayana). There is an intimate relationship between philosophy and travel: both challenge our everyday assumptions and raise important ethical questions.
What are the moral virtues or even obligations of the "good traveler"? Should we "do as the Romans do" even if they act immorally (e.g., disrespect women)? Do we have a moral obligation to represent our country when we travel abroad? Can we truly understand another culture? When does travel become voyeurism? Does our quest for "authentic" travel destroy the very authenticity of the places we visit? If we are concerned about impoverished areas, should we use our money to help them rather than visit them?
Instructor Elias Baumgarten just retired from teaching philosophy for 46 years at UM-Dearborn and has traveled to over 70 countries. This study group meets on Mondays, 1-3, from October 1 through October 29.
