Event Notes


We live in unsettling times, when a climate crisis looms and Donald Trump rules. Is philosophy relevant to our daily lives—and if so, how?

From politics to architecture, fishing to pop culture—no subject is off limits for Mark Kingwell, a public intellectual who uses philosophy to gain insights into human behaviour.

A professor of philosophy at the University of Toronto, Kingwell joins the Salt Spring Forum for a far-reaching and thought-provoking discussion.

Mark Kingwell has lectured to academic and popular audiences across the world. He has written 18 books, many of which became national bestsellers. His latest, Fail Better: Why Baseball Matters (2017), is a meditation on the game and what it can teach us about life.

Please join us for this stimulating evening of discussion with one of Canada’s leading intellectuals!
