Science Discussion Series-PDX (Even Months) Meets in NW Portland

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 Friendly House; next month we'll be at the Beaverton Community Center, Vose Room.

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 6:30, light refreshments provided; discussion is from 6:45 - 8:30.

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!

    The April 4th Science Discussion will start with a review of science news over the last month and end with another 30 minute video from Neil DeGrasse Tyson's "The Inexplicable Universe". Last month we viewed one of the six parts of this video series and the attendees seemed to enjoy it very much... and wanted another in April.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
