Science Discussion: an on-going series of discussion groups focused upon science and utilizing the scientific perspective (naturalism, critical thinking).
The meetup alternates monthly: this month we are at the Beaverton Community Center, Vose Room; next month we'll be at the Friendly House in NW Portland.
Within the scope of group discussions is anything science-related (e.g. philosophy of science, methods of science, things that hinder science, ethical implications of scientific discoveries and spin-off technology, philosophy inspired by science, etc.). When the subject of discussions are problems (of individuals or society), the intent is to discuss them with a critical, analytical, scientific perspective (objective and unbiased), with more focus upon framing and setting up problems than arriving at solutions. Political discussion is considered outside the scope of the group.
Information on the topic of this discussion will be posted in the comments section when it becomes available.
Social time begins at 6:15, light refreshments provided; discussion is from 6:30 - 8:15.
All fees are paid by our HGP sponsors; donations towards the work of HGP are gratefully accepted.
We look forward to seeing you - bring a friend!
