Re: [philosophy-156] The DFW Examined Life Philosophy Group suggested donation

From: Jim

David,
 
At the last meeting of the Examined Life we discussed me helping out with the next meeting. I came up with a couple of possible topics.
 
1) Is Science the ultimate 'truth"? Are there other forms of truth that could compete with and/or challenge science's authority?
 
2) In what ways is science true and what makes it true?
 
3) What, if anything, are the ethical obligations/restrictions of science and scientists?
 
Another possible topic would be something about education, i.e. what is the proper or best education for a child? Should education include moral training? Is home schooling preferable to public education? What is the best governmental or social framework for education, if any? To what extent should a child's own preferences drive his/her education?
 
I can do some research on these topics, whichever you choose, before the next meeting. Warning, I'm not very adept with computers - just do email and surf the web.

A special announcement from David V., Organizer of The DFW Examined Life Philosophy Group

Dear Philosophers,

As you may be aware, Meetup.com charges for its services. A number of your proactively offered to pitch in (thanks!), so I've decided to specify a suggested donation amount. The group costs $12/month (I erroneously said $19/month during the meetup, but I pay the 6-month price). Since we usually get 6-8 people at meetups, I think $2 per month should cover my expenses. Of course you can vary the amount/frequency per your preferences.

You can pay with PayPal, but I prefer cash since PayPal takes a cut of the payment.
You can pay through PayPal at http://philosophy.meetup.com/156/paypal/pay/group/

I hope you understand why I made this change and support the group as we take the necessary steps to ensure our long-lasting success. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me through the 'Contact Organizer' link for our group:

Sincerely,

David V.
