We have in fact worked with Philosophy Now Magazine, and can only apologies that this actual Forum has been neglected in the process - having had such a large response, we would like to offer your members a 15% discount on ticket prices.
I sincerely appreciate your revisiting this forum and maintaining your thread. Keeping a civil tongue in your head in your response makes me look even more like the asshole that I am.
Thank you and I apologize for being possibly over the top.
I hope that some one of our members here at the Philosophy Now Forum
would take you up on your generous offer to attend this event and report back to the forum.
There is however, time for the HowTheLightGetsIn Festival Team
to speak with Mr. Rick Lewis
to offer him the ability to open-up the festival. I don't know that he would even be available at such a short notice, but I have the feeling he would appreciate the consideration...
I know your speakers are already in place but could you find SOMETHING to offer Rick
I think he is important both in his staunch resolve in maintaining the Philosophy Now Magazine
and in his
resoluteness in maintaining this Philosophy Now Forum
as a labor of love, for unlike your speakers, Rick
does not receive any monetary compensation from this site for now. He does it for the pure love of the dicipline of philosophical thought.
, I have grown to respect you for responding to my rant in a civil manner, now I am asking you to go one step further. Would you allow Rick Lewis
or one of our members here, for instance Arising_uk
to be some sort of guest, or speaker at this important festival?
I AM having a bad day today
. Some of the best written work in my life has appeared on this forum and I know it is the same with other Philosophy Now Forum
members. The feeling in the end, in my gut, is that I am hurt and disappointed that the Philosophy Now Forum
was not even considered to be included within this event. We are that unimportant?
I wish my gut feeling was different but really NOT ONE of your 145 speakers has ever ventured into this den to express an opinion or philosophical insight. Where are they?
We have TWO SOLID WEEKS before this festival. HowTheLightGetsIn
, why don't you get a few of your guest speakers to visit here and identify themselves. They can't be that busy. This forum could be a great skills sharpening session to tone-up before your debates
Good luck to you in all you do and I sincerely hope that this HowTheLightGetsIn First Annual Festival
is a HUGE success!
