Nagel, "The View from Nowhere"

  • Mar 27, 2013 · 6:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please read the following carefully before RSVP-ing:

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


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?)


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


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.

A Poem for You

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

    One of the most thought-provoking discussions I've had thus far after moving to New York last year. Thank you all.

    Like that poetic line as an opening line. Indeed, only the
    stars are beaming in their radiance to hear us breathing
