This meetup consists of different groups of people reading certain material to different degrees of depth and intensity. Books we've read in the past include Descartes' 'Meditations', Hume's 'Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding', Kant's '1st Critique', Kant's 'Prolegomena', Heidegger's 'Being and Time', Husserl's 'Logical Investigations', Hegel's 'Phenomenology of Spirit', Marx's 'Capital', and many others.
From time to time new groups are formed and remain open for awhile to newcomers.
If you join our meetup, you'll get an email as soon as any new group starts. No background in philosophy required. Feel free to propose a reading group topic or volunteer to organize one!
