Science Discussion Series- NW Portland and Beaverton

Science Discussion: an on-going series of discussion groups focused upon science and utilizing the scientific perspective (naturalism, critical thinking).

Our meeting times have changed: Friendly House meetings have moved to the third Sunday after the regular program, 11:40 am-12:55 pm. West-side meetings will still be held with the schedule dependent up on room availability; they will occur on the Thursday before or after the 3rd Sunday and will continue to be from 6:30pm-8:30pm.

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.

Come early, if you like, and enjoy the HGP main program (10am-11:15am), light refreshments, and socializing with like-minded people.

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!

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.
