About the Event
The Way of the Householder – Natural Law, Philosophy, Politics and Economics A talk by David Triggs on Saturday 8th June, 2pm at 11 Mandeville Place Advaita ‐ the School of Vedantic thought associated with Shankara ‐ inspires and guides the study and practise of Philosophy in today’s School of Economic Science. In this talk David Triggs will explore how this resonates with the teachings of Henry George upon which the School was originally founded over eighty years ago. It will be based on a recognition that the natural world of physical phenomena, human action and thought, are governed by universal law and that behaviour in harmony with this law is the key to peace and happiness, both for the individual and for society. David will explore the impact that each of these two spheres of human behaviour have upon each other and how in particular political economy (household management for citizens) might relate to ‘the way of the householder’. He will show how the impediments to both economic justice and individual freedom are related. There is no entrance fee. A collection will be taken to defray costs.
