Mistakes: Have you ever thought they can lift you up? by Corinna Casi

Can you think of a world where failures do not represent a personal defeat? Can you imagine a world where mistakes are part of a growing process and not a downfall? What type of world would that be? How that would change your perspective?

Philosophers have always been talking about possible worlds and alternative realities, from Plato to Tommaso Campanella, from Thomas More to Voltaire. During the talk on Thursday 07.12 in Arkadia (Helsinki, 17.30-19.00), these topics will be approached from a philosophical perspective and with some practical exercises. Curious? There is only one way to find it out…
