    What a superb speaker. David Rathbone is so lucid, and I have never before seen such body language. But why was he allowed to lecture for almost two hours, instead of the Existentialist Society's usual time of one hour?

    Terrific. At the Meetup there were many animated conversations going on at once.

    The speaker should have commenced with Simone de Beauvoir, instead of leaving her to the end when he was in a hurry to finish.
