    Philosophers' Café | Consumption and Accumulation
    Do we consume only what is needed for sustenance? Are our contemporary consumptive practices driven by a need for accumulation? How compatible is our need for accumulation with the notions of the greatest freedom, religion or even science?

    Philosophers' Café | Being Smart Is Stupid?
    B.C.’s Premier dropped out of three universities but is (consequently?) “able to communicate with people.” If millennials actually do face reduced career opportunities, are the costs of further education perhaps a “bad” idea? If we chose not to concern ourselves with esoteric distraction couldn’t we make more income and thus have more fun?
