This Meetup is one of two book club meetings this evening. Sign up for this meeting if you want to read and discuss "The Hedgehog and the Fox" by Isaiah Berlin. Sign up for the other meeting if you prefer "Without Guilt and Justice" by Walter Kaufmann. Since these meetings will take place simultaneously, do not sign up for both.
Isaiah Berlin's book is out of print, but is widely available in libraries and easily found used online. For those of you interested in the Kaufmann, you can download a PDF from this website. Go to the "More" menu above and select "Files". Terry tells me that the first 61 pages contain the essential reading material.
The April poll results are in, and the winners are: Richard's pick "The Blank Slate" by Steven Pinker and Orson's pick "The Beginning of Infinity" by David Deutsch. I'll host the discussion on the Pinker book. Any volunteers to host the April discussion on the Deutsch book? Let me know.
Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our May selections. You'll find that under the "More" menu at the top of this page. Anyone who is a member of this Meetup can submit a title for the poll. Just send me an email or post on this site, and I'll add your selection. However, I will only include one title from each member. If you submitted a title last month, I've rolled it over into the new poll. If you want to change your recommendation, just let me know.
As always, it's essential that everyone who comes to the meeting reads the book in its entirety. Please also bring a food or drink item for the potluck.
