What topics in philosophy interest you?

Metaphysics and Phenomenology (Gotta give a shout out to Wittgenstein in the leather jacket years...)


I like organizing stuff but am obviously bad at navigating meetup...

What Andrew is saying about this Meetup Group

Thanks Brent (et al). I'm glad you'll be sticking with it. So far, I have no control over the material, though I do ask for abstracts. (I'm trying to convince speakers that they don't have to spoonfeed us, but I'm unsure of what that would mean to an academic with a busy schedule. The series in Dallas is mostly technical papers, which I enjoyed immensely, though you can sometines get droning...) I guess when we get more "street cred" we can "up the bar" a bit. A mix of folksy and technical would probably maximize group utility. So far, though, I am just glad the academics have generously given us time from their extremely busy schedules, and engaged people like you have been in the audience. I'm sure a consistent turnout will make speakers bring their A-game...
