Our discussion on beauty has been delayed. So, on Dec. 4, we will have an open discussion. Bring in a topic you would like to discuss. Start with a brief overview or description of the idea. Then ask a few provocative questions to begin the conversation.
For examples of introductory books to explore ideas in a philosophical manner here are a couple examples available in English and Mandarin.
Mini-Philosophy: a small book of big ideas
What does it all mean? : a very short introduction to philosophy.
