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!

    Again there is no specific topic this month, but there will be the usual review of Science news over the past month, including updates on the Mars Curiosity Rover, the Kepler mission, and assorted stories from Reuters and Neuroscience news. As always, feel free to bring your own contributions! Hope to see you there!

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
