Green Bay Area Philosophers’ Cafe

The first of the 2018–2019 Green Bay Area Philosophers’ Cafe gatherings will be held at St. Brendan’s Inn on Wednesday, September 19, 7 to 8:30. Ryan Martin, UW-Green Bay professor of human development and psychology, will lead us in a discussion, “In Defense of Anger.” Anger gets a bad rap sometimes. People often see it as inherently problematic and most conversations about anger are about how not to feel it.  Sure it can get us into trouble, damage relationships, and even be scary at times, but anger is a healthy and powerful force in our lives.  We'll talk about why we get mad, and how to listen to that anger and how to use it ways that are positive and prosocial.
