Book Club Potluck - "Art as Experience"

  • February 8, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Our new format of parallel book club meetings is working well. Sign up for this meeting if you want to read and discuss "Art as Experience" by John Dewey. Sign up for the other meeting if you prefer "Philosophy and the Mirror of Nature" by Richard Rorty. Since these meetings will take place simultaneously, do not sign up for both.

The March poll results are in, and the winners are: "The Hedgehog and the Fox" by Isaiah Berlin and "Without Guilt and Justice" by Walter Kaufmann. For those of you interested in the Kaufmann, you can download a PDF. Go to the "More" menu above and select "Files". Terry tells me that the first 61 pages contain the essential reading material.

Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the poll for our April 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.

I look forward to seeing around half of you in February. 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!

    As Richard has noted, what is John's Apt. #? This may indeed help a lot of members. It may also be helpful to know at least his phone # to get buzzed up to his Apt. I'll see everyone tonight and I just camp out in front in the lobby to make a nuisance of myself?

    I notice that John seems to reside in a large multi-unit building. Do I need any further info on unit # ---?

      That's completely up to you, Rich. Whatever you like and want to share will be fine. It's a potluck!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
