Event Location
Upson Room, Walter Library (first floor)

117 Pleasant St SE
Minneapolis, MN 55455

Philosophers, economists, songwriters, poets, and writers have all confronted the eternal question:  Can money buy happiness?  Or are the best things in life free? 

A discussion between Professors Valerie Tiberius (philosophy) and Christopher Phelan (economics) will be followed by a (hopefully) lively and robust discussion with and among students. 

No registration required! Free to attend.

About the series

Can We Talk? is a new event series that gives students and faculty a chance to discuss today’s issues in an informal, casual setting. Led by CLA professors, these conversations will invite participants to share knowledge, ideas, and perspectives on topics that often divide us. 

The format

CLA professors will kick-off conversations by sharing differing perspectives on specific topics. Then they'll invite students to join the discussion. You'll have a chance to ask questions, offer counter points, and dig deeper to understand each other's points of view.

The snacks

Yes, there will be snacks! Sweet and savory treats will be served, along with hot and cold beverages.
