The Old Guard of Westchester is a not-for-profit organization, with roots that go back to 1954.  Old Guard members are residents of Westchester County and neighboring communities.  We are retired or semi-retired men who had careers such as businessmen, lawyers, doctors, managers, financiers, writers, teachers, and communication specialists.

We meet every Tuesday at the Westchester Society for Ethical Culture building in White Plains to socialize and listen to guest speakers on topics including local, regional and national social issues, economic and political topics, medicine and other science related subjects. Our programs are available to the public in person and via ZOOM Virtual Meetings.  For information regarding attendance at a specific event, and for ZOOM meeting information, please contact us via the following link Program Information

This Week's Program:

Truth or Consequences: The Retrieval of Truth in a Radically Relativized World


This Week's Speaker:

Alex Eodice


About the Speaker:

Professor of Philosophy,  Iona University

Location     Westchester Society for Ethical Culture, 7 Saxon Woods Road, White Plains, NY and via ZOOM Meetings
Extra Info    We live in an age of such relativized thinking that truth itself is under assault. Many seem to favor replacing an idea of “the truth” with a personalized “my truth” or dismiss the value of truth altogether. Such views have a profoundly negative effect on our general understanding of human knowledge and on those institutions central to civic life in a democratic society. In this talk, I consider the consequences of abandoning truth and propose what might be needed to retrieve it in a climate of radical relativism.
