This year is not just the 100th anniversary of the beginning of WWI, it is also 100 years since one of the most influential philosophers of the 20th century, Ludwig Wittgenstein, began writing his highly Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus. Come and discuss Wittgenstein's impact on modern philosophy, the problems with so-called logical positivism, the Vienna Circle, and what all of this has to do with Tolstoy!
The recommended reading, as usual, can be found here.
RSVP for this event will begin on 9/1 at 7pm.
This meetup will take place at Massimo's apartment in Chelsea (near the 1, C, E, F, N, and R subways), which is conducive to a much more relaxed and far less noisy experience than a restaurant setting. We will provide dinner (mostly Italian vegetarian dishes, plus one protein-based entree) and wine (choice of white or red). The fee for the meetup+dinner is of $20/person (less than you would typically spend at a restaurant!), and if you want wine (half a bottle) it is $28/person. You will be asked to pay the basic fee upon a successful RSVP; if you wish to add wine you will be asked to kindly pay the reminder of the fee in cash at the meeting.
Details on how to get to the meetup will be provided to registered participants. Please keep in mind that this event will take place at a private residence, so do NOT arrive early, since we will be cooking and setting things up, and do NOT linger afterwards, since your hosts will be cleaning up and relaxing after a good evening’s work. Thank you.
