“It is very easy to overestimate the importance of our own achievements in comparison with what we owe others.”

Dietrich BonhoefferThe Revolution Ethics Project conducts seminars for people of all ages who want to see the world anew and make the world a little better.  Led by instructor Eric Bowman, the group meets for reading, hearty discussion, intellectual growth and a few laughs. Studying some history, philosophy, religion, and literature, we look at current social issues, ethical scenarios, and our own attitudes in an attempt to bring about meaningful change in the world.

Through activities and discussion we will hope to inspire each other to be a little less cynical and to work towards solutions to the world’s problems—or maybe just the problems that are closest to us. We will seek to show that everything we do matters, and that “morality” isn’t a topic limited to philosophy class or faith communities. The next leaders of society will not just be cunning businessmen or ambitious politicians—they will be hopeful, thoughtful, kind-hearted people.

Summer 2014:  Revolution Ethics Project and a Round Table at Phillips Exeter

The Revolution has grown significantly over the last few years, and now we're bringing our conversation on the road. Revolution students will make the journey to Exeter, NH to host a round table discussion with students at the Phillips Exeter Summer School. The conversation, titled  "Religion, Politics, and Power" will focus on the injustice, violence, and hatred in our society that is, ironically, supported by organized religion. As always, we'll conclude the conversation by considering what we might do to address the problem.
