Synopsis of the online event:

How has the ongoing pandemic changed our habits, plans, and ways of living? How has it altered our social relations, physical behavior, and expectations? To what extend should it lead us to reconsider some or our political, social, and moral beliefs? Nicolas Prevelakis and a group of other faculty from Harvard's Committee on Degrees in Social Studies will lead this informal philosophy discussion in the aftermath of CHS Greece's 2020 High School Summer Program. To participate in this discussion, we ask that you think of at least one philosophical idea which has been particularly meaningful to you during this period and share it through the registration form. If you do not have an insight but are interested to hear what others have found helpful, please join us too.

The event is open to current and past participants of the CHS Greece High School Summer Program and will take place via Zoom. Registration is required.
