May 29 – Bishop Butler Day: On Sunday, May 29, at 4:00 PM. the annual Bishop Butler Birthday Party at Books, ETC. The Bishop Butler Society, will host a presentation on Bishop Butler, his life and his major philosophies. Bishop Butler’s Sermons are the only sermons in English routinely read by secular moral philosophers today. Bishop Butler’s analysis of human nature in terms of self-love, benevolence, compassion, resentment, and self-deception continue to stand watch on the border between the classical psychology of the passions and the modern psychology of the emotions. Bishop’s Butler’s insistence on the supremacy of conscience in human nature influenced Henry David Thoreau, and through Thoreau, M. K. Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. This program is free and open to the public at Books, ETC., 78 W Main St., Macedon. If you have any questions, please respond by email books_etc@yahoo.com or phone John Cieslinski at 585-474-4116
