Invitation to Join the Wonder Reading Group


The ancient Greeks thought philosophy began in wonder. Thomas Aquinas believed it to be a desire for knowledge. Heidegger thought that we have ceased to wonder altogether and at the end of his life Wittgenstein mysteriously claimed that he had lived a wonderful life.

Ever wondered about wonder?

If you have ever wondered about wonder, its nature, meaning, facets, application or value why not join the new Wonder Reading Group.
