Sunday Speaker: Professor Jim Richardson, The Humanism of David Hume

Sunday Speaker Meeting

Professor Jim Richardson, The Humanism of David Hume

David Hume [masked]), Scottish man of letters, made major contributions in history, economics, and especially philosophy.  His A Treatise of Human Nature and Dialogues Concerning Religion are foundational texts for Humanism. His reputation is as high in the 21st century as it has ever been.

 Jim Richardson will try to explain why that reputation is richly deserved.

Doors open at 9:00am for optional breakfast ($5) and socializing.

We enjoy the company of our fellow Humanists and a lecture from a guest speaker and topic discussion ending by 11:30 a.m. Our meetings are free and open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Humanism.

Breakfast is offered for sale to members and guests for $5.00. For coffee only, the charge is $1.00. If you would like to have coffee and/or food, please pay at the welcome desk by the entrance door. Of course, donations are always gratefully accepted as well.

    Like Al Wendler, I, too, wish he would have been my professor 40 years ago.
