    This is something in which I have a very strong interest. I very much hope it is scheduled at a time that I would be able to attend.

      Hi John, the meetings are always on the first Sunday of the month, from 3 to 5 pm. Would June 7 or July 5 work, in principle?

      HI, Leo,
      Thanks for getting back to me. I have no plans this far in advance, so either June or July should work.
      I am brand new to this, so I don’t know how far in advance specific books are generally scheduled. Of course, the sooner the better.

    Bob and I would hate to miss the discussion on this. Please don't schedule it for May.

    Leo, I would co-host this with you. I think I would need to fall back on your neuroscience expertise !

    Patricia Churchland is a very influential scholar in the field of "philosophy of mind", and has written several books on the interface between philosophy and neuroscience. This books touches on some of the issues we were talking about in the online discussion of our last book.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
