Ethics & the Brain
We are exploring the human brain and how it handles ethics. Patricia Churchland is a neurophilosopher who argues that morality originates in the biology of the brain. This conclusion is consistent with humanism. We are getting close to the end of reading and discussing her new book entitled "Braintrust". Go ahead and come to the meeting even if you do not have the book. Much information about Churchland and her views is available on the internet, including her Facebook page, and many of the links have been posted on the message board.
We meet at a private residence in an apartment complex, so do not park in spaces with numbers on then. Best parking, is the parking row near the tennis courts, but any parking space not numbered will work. The apartment is located off of a sidewalk behind the southern tier of buildings.
This is a potluck, so bring some food, snacks or drinks to share!
If you would like to suggest a topic or be put on an email distribution list and from time to time receive resource materials and reminders, send an email request to [address removed] - PLEASE SPECIFY that you want on the Humanist Study Group list!
Also, note that many participants in this group do not reserve through this Meetup site. We generally have a pretty good group, so do not be dissuaded from attending if only a few have signed up here!
