Aged Care:
a philosophical exploration

Dear Launie Pub Philosophers:

“The measure of a civilization is how it treats its weakest members” (attributed to Gandhi)

At the next philosophy cafe on Tuesday April 6, we will be considering aged care.

The Royal Commission’s report is now public. Change is needed. But ...

What will motivate, enable, and facilitate change?

What values should direct society’s attitude to the aged and the ageing?

What ethical, social, cultural, and wider philosophical issues are raised here?

We start our discussion at around 6pm and finish up around 7:30pm, and you will find us at the Gunners Arms Tavern, 23 Lawrence St Launceston.

Do come along to discuss this important issue (a poster and handout are attached).

I have attached the Handout (PDF 83 KB) and Poster (PDF 2 MB) for your reference.
