"Mind" won the vote at our February 13 meeting. A way to frame the discussion is to look at the topic through the lens of the Philosophy of Mind. Here's an article on Wikipedia about this branch of philosophy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philosophy_of_mind
Here's an excerpt from the article's introduction:
"Philosophy of mind is a branch of philosophy that studies the nature of the mind, mental events, mental functions, mental properties, consciousness, and their relationship to the physical body, particularly the brain. The mind–body problem, i.e. the relationship of the mind to the body, is commonly seen as one key issues in philosophy of mind, although there are other issues concerning the nature of the mind that do not involve its relation to the physical body, such as how consciousness is possible and the nature of particular mental states."
All members are encouraged to RSVP, but please do so as soon as possible since spots fill up quickly.
If all spots have been taken, please put yourself on the waiting list.
We will meet on the second level of the Barnes & Noble store, to the right of the cafe counter area in the back of the store (but not in the cafe itself). You will see a circle of folding chairs (and possibly a folding table) if you walk up to the cafe counter and then look to your right to the back wall of the store.
Please make sure to RSVP only if you are able to attend since RSVPs are limited. If you RSVP, but need to change your plans, please make sure to come back to the meetup site to change your RSVP (at least 48 hours in advance of the meeting) to provide others with an opportunity to RSVP for this meetup.
I look forward to seeing you!
