George Herbert Meade-The Philosophy of the Present

For our first meeting on Pragmatist philosopher George Herbert Mead we will read his short book The Philosophy of the Present. It is available free on the internet:

or in an inexpensive paperback edition at Amazon:

James T. Farrell said of Meade that "his style was often marked by accuracy and precision. Some of his papers are a pleasure to read not only because of their originality but also because they are models of compact organization." You can read his entire review "George Herbert Mead's Philosophy of the Present." (1947) online at:

    Tonight included everything that makes for a great meetup: A philosopher that is not widely known but left us several unique and interesting concepts. A diverse crowd of different backgrounds, experience and opinions. Most of all, plenty of opportunities for all participants to contribute to the discussion and furthering our mutual understanding. All in all, an excellent night for philosophy!
