I will host the June 21 discussion of Alan Sokal's Beyond the Hoax: Science, Philosophy and Culture. Russell suggested this book. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Beyond-Hoax-Science-Philosophy-Culture/dp/0199561834.
The other option for June is Karl's pick The Happiness of Pursuit: What Neuroscience Can Teach Us About the Good Life by Shimon Edelman. See the June 14 Meetup.
The July poll results are in, and the winners are: Terry's pick,Nietzsche: Life as Literature by Alexander Nehamas, and Lincoln's pick, On Revolution by Hannah Arendt. Marc has volunteered to host the Nehamas Meetup. Both Marc and Richard have offered to host in August. Let me know if you'd be willing to host. I need two volunteers per month. I'd be happy to relinquish my duties for the Sokal Meetup in June. I definitely need someone to host the Arendt book in July. August and September are wide open.
Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our August 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.
