Dear Eudaimonians,

 

 

 

I have been asked by a few people already if they have to have read the book under discussion for our meeting on Sunday, Thomas Sowell's Conflict of Visions. The answer is: no. I and other will summarize the chapters we will will address, and all those in attendance will be invited to share their thoughts and ideas.

 

If you are not able to read the book, you may want to look at book reviews on the Web. e.g.,

 

www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Conflict_o­f_Visions

 

www.nybooks.com/articles/archives/1988­/sep/29/down-from-liberalism-an-exchange­/?pagination=false

 

(the original review is not available without a subscription, but you can get a sense of it with Sowell's response to Scanlon, and Scanlon's response to Sowell).
