What we're about

We are a Great Books reading and discussion group that specializes in political philosophy. Over the years we have read a wide variety of thinkers, from Plato to Richard Rorty. We are currently reading the works of Friedrich Nietzsche from beginning to end. Our group is open to all comers, so please give us a try!

We meet on the third Thursday of every month at Central Market.

There is a one-page Discussion Guide describing how we work. Click on "More" and "Files" to download.

Join us for a live and virtual discussion of Aristotle's Ethics

Needs a location

Reading: Aristotle, Ethics
Books 1 & 2

Once again, we will meet in person in the Community Room at Central Market and online via Webex. I will paste the Webex invitation in this space when we get nearer to the event.

We began our discussion of the Ethics last time and discussed the first four chapters of Book 1, so we will pick it up in January with chapter 5.

I suggest reading through Book 2, even though we may not begin discussing it in January.

Here is a PDF translation:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all, and thanks for your company in 2021.
