Humanity stands on the brink of total annihilation. As the bombs detonate, the meteor plummets, or the temperatures rise, there exists a time capsule that preserves (in full) one entire discipline of human thought, to be opened by the next generation of sentient life on the planet.
Which discipline should be preserved? Faculty from several disciplines will argue their cases, including Prof. Rachana Kamtekar (Philosophy), and colleagues from Classics, Physics, and Computer Science.
Join LOGOS - Cornell's Undergraduate Philosophy Club in this exciting debate about which field should be preserved for the next generation!
At the end of the debate, participants can vote for which field they believe should be passed down and a winner will be crowned!
