Saturday 17.2 at 1pm at Arkadia: Discussion on De-extinction and the Anthropocene with the Biosophical Society

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited by the Biosophical Society to join a discussion on De-extinction and the Anthropocene on Saturday  17.2 at 1pm at Arkadia  (Nervanderinkatu 11)

De-extinction and the Anthropocene:

Scientists want to bring back the woolly mammoth, to save the Siberian tundra from climate change. What do you think about that? And what is de-extinction anyway? Join us for a discussion on the who, what, and where of de-extinction, briefly touching on the idea of the Anthropocene.


Warm regards,


  • A donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the bookshop is suggested and would be most welcome. Arkadia wouldn’t exist without this act of generosity. If you have no loose change or coins we gladly accept payment via Visa Electron or Mastercard etc. !

The Biosophical Society is an informal discussion group centered around philosophical questions relating to organic systems. We are interested in understanding, developing, and exchanging ideas about life sciences and other systems of inquiry (including artistic and creative systems of inquiry) through the lens of philosophy. Our discussion group is open to all, and we encourage those with differing backgrounds and from all walks of life to join in and broaden the scope of our conversation.

We will meet approximately every third Saturday of the month from 13.00-15.00. Our dates for the spring are March 17th, April 21st, and May 19th. For more information on our discussion topics, contact to subscribe to email updates or find us on Facebook. We hope you can join us!
