"Great people talk about IDEAS. Average people talk about THINGS. Small people talk about OTHER PEOPLE." --Tobias S. Gibson Are you tired of repetitive, maddeningly superficial "small talk"? Does endless talk about sports figures and celebrities bore you out of your wits? Would you prefer instead to discuss the ideas that shaped history? If you answered "yes", you are cordially invited a Pasadena discussion group. This meet-up will be an intellectual oasis, a refuge for those who wish to escape the ubiquitous small talk and gossip about celebrities. Here we’ll discuss not people or things, but the ideas – powerful ideas that shaped our thinking, our life and the world we live in. There have been deep thinkers throughout history – how do their ideas still affect us? Were there any good ideas in the past that have been undeservedly forgotten? Were there any bad ideas that changed the world for the worst, and, if yes, how can we resist their influence?
We will discuss a variety of topics here. At the end of every meeting, we'll brainstorm about the topic of our next meeting. You are invited to join us and add your two cents to the wealth of discussion.
