The great American philosopher Groucho Marx said, “These are my principles, and if you don’t like them… well, I have others.”
Ethics, principles, practices, and our philosophy are all part of the story of our lives. Understanding our philosophies, ethics and practices are “part” of the “story” we live by, and that is exactly what Socrates meant when he said, “An unexamined life is not worth living.”
At the Institute of Transactional Philosophy, we examine the philosophies we as humans live by. We invite you to join us in person on Monday, January 30, 2023 at 1-5p.m. at the Loews Hollywood Hotel for an afternoon of spirited inquiry and learning where we will examine the role story plays in how we live our lives.
As Kirkland Tibbels offers in the Foreword of Transactionalism: An Historical and Interpretive Study:
Perhaps the work starting here can lead to an entirely new modern philosophy, or if not something so ambitious, perhaps a framework to ground our thinking and acting… The opportunities available to us are great if, through cooperation, we are able to coexist, help, be helped, and heed the words of Barth and Bruner and face the facts of our transactional selves.
