Full Description: The Department of Philosophy presents a coffee and discussion of "The Fear Factor." Questions discussed will include: Why do we enjoy horror movies? Why, more generally, do we find the disturbing enticing? Why do we seek out in art those aspects of reality--gore, violence, and abuse--that we try to eliminate? What does our interest in horror tell us about ourselves? Are we wrong to like horror movies and the emotions they evoke? Free and open to the public.
