Announcing a new Meetup for The Houston Philosophy Meetup Group!

What: What is history

When: Wednesday, December 1,[masked]:00 PM

Where: One's a Meal Greek Village
812 Westheimer Rd
Houston, TX 77006
(713)[masked]

History is a study of the past, the people, places and events that have come before the present. But why do we bother? Why do we study history? Why is it important, or is it important? What does history mean to different cultures? Has the notion of history changed over time? How does determining what history to study occur? Who gets to decide what history is and what we should know concerning historical topics? Does that matter? Let's talk about history!

P.S. Gordon and I have agreed to go back to just one meetup a month. I picked Wednesday night as a compromise between Tuesday and Thursday.
