For our next gathering, Amaris Salon will host a discussion on "Doors in the Walls of the World: Signs of Transcendence in the Human Story", authored by Peter Kreeft, a professor of philosophy at Boston College in Boston, Massachusetts.

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy" says Hamlet to Horatio after William Shakespeare's Horatio sees the ghost of Hamlet's father, and scarcely believes his own eyes and tells him that there is more to reality than he can know or imagine.

Hamlet's statement suggests that the walls of the material world, which we perceive with our senses and analyze with our intellects, have doors that open into "the More" beyond them. Explaining that “In the beginning, there is only one philosophy of life. For all authentic philosophy begins in wonder. All three of the founders of philosophy, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, said that philosophy begins in wonder”, Philosopher Peter Kreeft takes the readers on the journey of recovering wonder and discovering the doors in the walls of the world.

Join us in our evening of a conversation on recovering wonders and discovering “Doors in the Walls of the World: Signs of Transcendence in the Human Story”...
