Karl will host the discussion of "The Road to Serfdom" by FA Hayek. Russell suggested this book. Here's a link: http://www.amazon.com/Road-Serfdom-Fiftieth-Anniversary/dp/0226320618/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1386990532&sr=1-1&keywords=The+Road+to+Serfdom%22+by+FA+Hayek. Whatever you do, don't read the Reader's Digest abridged version of this book. Abridged versions of this key text in political and economic philosophy can be completely misleading.
The other option for next month is Russell's pick, "The Ethics of Ambiguity" by Simone de Bouvoir. See the January 10 Meetup.
The February poll results are in, and the winners are: Orson's pick, "On Popper" by Mark Notturno, and Richard's pick, "Encountering Naturalism: A Worldview and Its Uses" by Thomas Clark. Sally and Caroline have agreed to host these two events. Let me know if you'd be willing to host in the future. I need two volunteers per month.
Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our Meetups two months out. 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, 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.
