Ales & Ideas: Should Technology be Beautiful – A Philosophical Approach

Clatsop Community College and the Fort George Brewery announce the third program of the 2013/2014 Ales & Ideas education series, Thursday, January 23 at 7pm in the Fort George Lovell Showroom.

Many have observed that technology can be beautiful. But is it important that it be beautiful? More specifically, can beauty play a role in technology being better as technology? This is the question Tichenor will investigate - looking to classical and contemporary thinkers from a wide array of disciplines & backgrounds (from Martin Heidegger to Steve Jobs).
