From ancient times to the characters on "The Good Place", people have turned to philosophy in difficult times. Join us to delve into a different book each month about philosophy. ( Books can be checked out of the library at jmrl.org). All are welcome to attend and discuss philosophy (the "love of wisdom"), even if you have not read the book!
