An Afternoon with Kendall Kyle

Civil Discourse – possible of not?

Oct. 14, 2018, 3:00 – 4:30 pm.

Divisive discourse seems to be growing throughout the western world. Rather than explore the sides, this talk will survey current thinking about the evolution of morality and belief – the stuff that creates sides. Why do we feel before we think and often fail to recognize that that’s what we do? Why are we righteous, tribal, sexist, racist, judgmental? And, too, why do we value civility?

This is Kendall’s 31st year on Galiano, and she’s beginning to think of herself as an authentic Galianoite. She’s an explorer, but confines herself to the safety fo the printed word.
