Denver, Co Meetup Of The Masonic Philosophical Society says
You are invited on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 6:30 PM to the Masonic Philosophical Society for our next hosted discussion and study. Each month a different topic, ranging from philosophy and science to religion and metaphysics, is discussed and debated. This group, which is open to the public, is where non-members can learn more about Freemasonry, as well as meet local Freemasons.

Study Topic
February's topic will be conducted by Brother Isaac Levy on a study of Freemasonry: Is art the most effective way to condition a society? After a short lecture, a discussion and debate by the group will follow.

Human beings have used art to express joy, anguish, pleasure, pain, reverence, love, and hatred. Its various forms speak to a different bend of mind. Art has been used to convey abstract concepts and is a reflection of the society of its time. It has been used to elevate humanity. Despite its inherent beauty, art has also been used negatively to promote various ideals. Freemasonry as an institution supports the Arts and is considered an art itself; thus, we find ourselves pondering the dualistic nature of art. Is art less of an external experience and more of a psychological impact. Can art be used in such away that it can be the most effective way to condition a society for better or worse?

Mission Statement
The Masonic Philosophical Society embraces the concept of learning, not for school, but for life, and believes that all men, who seek it, deserve access to continued education.
