Come out and join our reading and discussion of Chapter 3 (Mind and Body) of Nagel’s “The View from Nowhere”.

RSVP

Attendance is limited to seven persons. This is a function of the limits of the space available, and a desire to nurture effective discussion. Please remember to change your RSVP status if you are unable to attend (things happen, right?)

Text

The Nagel book is available for download at a local library or for purchase at amazon.

Format

After spending some time introducing ourselves, we will go around and open ask for general comments on the reading; then starting with the first section, we will ask which sections (or paragraphs they found interesting/challenging/discreditable…) and read/discuss those portions; finally we will go around once more and ask for closing comments.

And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars
Were not too much to pay for birth.
