I was intending to post a topic involving a philosophical-psychological-sociological area referred to as Folk Psychology. In the literature, folk psychology is wrapped up with mind theory which involves an esoteric philosophical jargon and pile of theories with a very high turnover rates, thanks to the growth of neuroscience. I will wrap up the research this week and post it for next weekend. Meanwhile, if you could help out and bring some topics to Sunday's meetup, we will democratically select one and see what societal mysteries we can solve.
Given the season, perhaps a discussion on rituals (Hanukkah/Chanuka, Advent, Winter Solstice, Christmas, et al)...Why we have them? What do they mean to us? May be we can deconstruct them into elements that treat different human needs?
