This month: HUMILITYIs humility necessary for contemplation? Is there room for humility in the age of the selfie? Are humble people happier people? And why does fame so often bring out the worst in us? Hear what happens when humility meets in the middle of  philosophy and self-help.“On the highest throne in the world, we still sit only on our own bottom.” ― Michel de MontaigneFind out why ABC, CBS, and The New York Times all recommend The Happier Hour as a must-do NYC event! (See that not-so-humble brag there?)The Happier Hour is a monthly event series and podcast taping bringing philosophy out of the ivory tower of academia and into our modern day agora: the bar. Each show features a philosophy professor and a philosophic-ish expert. It’s like the self-help section– only way funnier, smarter, and with booze.

What happens when a TED talk about chaos theory goes wildly off the rails? Chaos Theory is a comedic, immersive experience exploring the underlying chaos in our lives. A lecture about chaos theory devolves into a series of interactive games inspired by the science of chaos theory, Jurassic Park, middle school crushes, and abstract math seminars builds to “utter beautiful chaos” as the audience is guided by mathematical scientist, Dr. Genevieve Saoch, whose personal life continually interferes with her ability to be objective about her research as a Chaologist. Through a series of participatory experiments, audience members are invited to embrace their inner chaos agent as they embody facets of chaos theory including deterministic chaos, fractals, self-organization, and the butterfly effect.   Doors 9:00 PM, show 9:30 PM.Tickets $25 in advance, $30 at the door.21+This event is mixed seated and standing room.
