Ockham's Cafe: Wednesdays in Cordova

  • Mar 6, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Dinner and Discussion Group:

In the United States, is the North versus South cultural schism expanding or shrinking?

A Comparison of Northern and Southern States in America (less academic)

http://www.helium.com/items/958808-a-comparison-of-the-northern-and-southern-states-in-america

Wikipedia entry about Southern Culture (not necessary a completely reliable source of information; however, this Wikipedia entry appears to be relatively accurate)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Culture_of_the_Southern_United_States

Also, some of you are reading Steven Pinker's book The Better Angels of Our Nature. In this book, Pinker talks about the honor culture in the South that may lead to more violence or at least a greater acceptance of violence when honor is at stake.

    Yes, I remembered the word 'rift', but in context of the meeting, the tone of the question was not that there are stimulating differences, but rather a source of animosity.

      I came to the same conclusion.

    The way we worded the topic initially was something like, "Is the (cultural) tension between the north and south increasing or decreasing?"

    We are meeting at Perkins at 1340 S Germantown Parkway at 6:30 pm on March 6th. The topic is culture in the North versus the South. We hope to see everyone there!!!
