Human, All Too Human, Part II

Is this okay with everyone? I've emailed Don a couple times, but haven't heard from him.

    Colleen,
    Sorry to be confusing, the only cancellation was me canceling my personal attendance. The last scheduled meetup took place as scheduled. Can you tells us what communications you are referring to? I can check my email box to see if I got them and if not see what the problem may be with Meetup.

    If we do Nietzsche-informed fiction, Kundera would be good or someone should make another suggestion. If we did another meeting in September it would just be for folks who want to discuss Human All Too Human some more. October would be for the next book.

    Everyone please make suggestions for a next book by this Friday and we'll do a poll. Thanks!

    I'd love to read some nice Nietzsche-informed fiction! And, yes, I am down for another meeting (better in October), although I, too, received no message that there was a cancellation, have not heard anything from this group or received a reply to 2 separate communications ---

    Judith, that's odd, I replied to all your emails and actually RSVP'd for this which is what made it a official meetup. had a work crisis on Saturday and had to cancel. Is everyone up for a 3rd meeting on Human All Too Human this month? The next book in the chronology would be: The Dawn (1881). OR, we could take a break and read something external - A Bio or a reaction by another philosopher to one of the books we've read so far.

      I have no explanation either; just one of those mysterious cyber hiccups. I would really enjoy another session of Human, but The Dawn is okay with me, or an outside book. I read outside things anyway, but it would be fun to share something as a group.

    Corey, I look forward to meeting you and hearing about your Nietzsche bio project.

    "Damian" and I had a lovely wide-ranging conversation. We even talked about Nietzsche a bit. We missed the rest of you.

    Sorry I didn't make it guys... I loathe being a no-shower, but I had a tire emergency that required immediate replacement. Hope to make it to one of the next ones soon.

    Hey all, hope a newbie will be welcomed. I am not a philosophy major, but instead the dreaded Poli Sci. Curious and interested!

    I'm definitely in. If I may recommend a book, I recommend Rüdiger Safranski's Nietzsche: a Philosophical Biography. Safranski is just a great writer and this Biography is extraordinary... or must be. I haven't read it yet!

      So, are you Ishmael? I searched for your meetup name and didn't find anyone boy you, I think. Also, what have you read of Safranski that you liked?

    I really enjoyed reading the background book that Don suggested: Stephen Kern's The Culture of Time and Space; especially the first and last chapters, The Nature of Time and The Cubist War. I recommend skipping the Preface and Introduction, unless you are interested in Kern's description of the process of developing this book.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
