The Long Beach/Los Angeles Philosophy Meetup Group Monthly Meetup

  • This location is shown only to members

The Long Beach Philosophy Meetup meets once a month to discuss topics in philosophy. Generally, the focus will be Western philosophy, but all points of view are welcome. The designated topic for the January Meeting will be a discussion of Spinoza's essays on improving the intellect. It can be found on the internet at http://cscs.umich.edu... .

Feel free to initiate a topic with the group by e-mail or show up at the meeting with a topic in mind. When possible, we will select topics for discussion at the preceding meeting. The suggestion of short reading available on the Internet is encouraged for all topics. Although we have been meeting at the Coffee Bean, this venue is somewhat unfriendly, so we may be changing locations. Please check back closer to the time of the meeting to see where we will be meeting. The meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. The first twenty minutes or so will be devoted to introductions and settling in. Meetings will end when they are over. Don't worry about being late--come when you can. And please remember to RSVP.

    I've become a fascinated fan of Spinoza's worldview after the reading. As demonstrated by the discussion, his insights and methods seem both relevant and inspirational for philosophers seeking access to underlying wisdom in today's postmodern milieu of "anything goes."

    Loved it. Great insights shared by all! I felt that we touched only a tiny portion- but hey, we only have so much time.

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.
