Philosophy for Real Life: Monday Discussion Group

The topic this time is mathematics, specifically "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences,"  a famous paper by Eugene Wigner. There is a nice discussion happening on the message board, "What's So Special About Math?"  And here are some links to additional material:

This group typically reads a short article ahead of time and discusses it at the meeting. We approach philosophy as free human beings engaged in the world. The discussion format is free-form, and it is always quite lively.

    The YouTube lecture is segmented into multiple parts (seven). At the end of each one, the next one links via an icon in the video frame (for me, it's always upper in the upper left corner). I suppose you can get it to autolink.
