Humanist Study Group

The Bonobo and the Atheist: In Search of Humanism Among the Primates

Frans de Waal (Author)

 We are going to be talking about chapters three and four, also you don't have to have read it to come and talk Humanism.

This group is devoted to the study of humanism and related topics including the sources of human ethics and morality, how the brain works, anthropology and sociology.

We meet at a private residence in an apartment complex, so do not park in spaces with numbers on then. Best parking, is the parking row near the tennis courts, but any parking space not numbered will work. The apartment is located off of a sidewalk behind the southern tier of buildings.

This is a potluck, so bring some food, snacks or drinks to share!

If you would like to suggest a topic or be put on an email distribution list and from time to time receive resource materials and reminders, send an email request to [masked] - PLEASE SPECIFY that you want on the Humanist Study Group list!

Also, note that many participants in this group do not reserve through this Meetup site. We generally have a pretty good group, so do not be dissuaded from attending if only a few have signed up here!

    This might be the same book I heard about on NPR. It was an interesting discussion.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
