Book Club Potluck - "A Theory of Moral Sentiments"

  • Aug 22, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Richard will host the discussion of "A Theory of Moral Sentiments" by Adam Smith. Sally suggested this book.

The other option for next month is Shakti's pick. See the August 15 Meetup.

The September poll results are in, and the winners are: Marc Wilson's pick: "The Big Questions: Tackling the Problems of Philosophy" by Steven Landsburg, for which we need a host; and Richard's pick: "The Superorganism Account of Human Sociality" by Selin Kesebir, which Sally has agreed to host. You can download this paper at: https://www.academia.edu/2794591/The_superorganism_account_of_human_sociality_How_and_when_human_groups_are_like_beehives_Selin_Kesebir_University_of_Virginia. Let me know if you'd be willing to host  in the future. I need two volunteers per month. And let me know if you want to host the Landsburg book discussion September 19.

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.

Happy reading!
