You don't have to be a member of the Secular Humanist Society Book Club to attend our free meetings; you may well have worthwhile contributions to the conversation or just enjoy hanging out.  On Thursday, January 17th from 6:30-8:00 PM, we are discussing the sense of our Selves, our personal identity.  The meeting will be held as usual at the Muhlenberg public library, 209 West 23rd Street (at 7th Ave) 3rd floor - yes elevator -  just a block away from numerous subway stations, PATH stations, bus stations and parking.
 
The book is The Synaptic Self by Joseph Ledoux.  Drop me an e-mail so I can send you a detailed summary of the book, which also presents info on future meetings, including the March one where the author, Susan Jacoby will discuss her new book,The Age of American Unreason.  Fundamentalist religion is only one of the concerns she has with anti-intellectual and anti-rationalist trends in America over the past 4 decades.
