We have been reading and discussing Richard Tarnas' book The Passion of the Western Mind: Understanding the Ideas that Have Shaped Our World View. This discussion will be on Part IV, The Transformation of the Medieval Era. Please note that this meeting is occurring only two weeks after our last last meeting instead of the usual three. But then, the reading is only 2/3's as long as the last one. However, we expect you to read 3/3's of this section and show up with 4/3's of the usual enthusiasm. Seriously. We will be using our enthusiasmeter.
