Welcome back to The Amateur Society for a discussion about the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. This iconic structure has stood for almost a millennium, and the footage of the roof burning and the spire collapsing was shocking. Given that large portions of the building are still intact, what does this tell us about the critical essence of such a place? In moments like these we should ask additional questions. Why do we immediately perceive Notre Dame as significant? What would different worldviews say about the significance of the structure? How can we be more thoughtful in general instead of only being forced to reflect by dramatic events if at all? Thanks again for joining us on The Amateur Society!
