What is play for, and is there any relationship of play and ethics? It is not oxymoronic to take play seriously, as it is a universal human phenomenon — but at the same time, it can be fun!

Talk |
With: Hugh Taft Morales. A growing number of people today describe themselves as “spiritual but not religious.” They yearn for something more than mundane experiences of every day life, but without the trappings of dogma and bureaucracy. Hugh Taft-Morales explores ways humanists could best approach the word “spiritual.” Is it a danger to reason because, as the founder of Ethical Culture Felix Adler said, it is often “a synonym of muddy thought and misty emotionalism?” Or can naturalistic forms of spirituality found in Spinoza, John Dewey, and Carl Sagan enliven humanism today? How might humanist spirituality help us make progress on, to quote David Brooks, the “road to character?”

William Henry Devereaux, Jr., spiritually suited to playing left field but forced by a bad hamstring to try first base, is the unlikely chairman of the English department at West Central Pennsylvania University. Over the course of a single convoluted week, he threatens to execute a duck, has his nose slashed by a feminist poet, discovers that his secretary writes better fiction than he does, suspects his wife of having an affair with his dean, and finally confronts his philandering elderly father, the one-time king of American Literary Theory, at an abandoned amusement park.
