Sunday Speaker Meeting: Dr. James Richardson

Thomas Piketty's much talked-about book Equality has prompted Dr. Richardson to create a presentation entitled "America's Inequality: A Betrayal of Our Founding Philosophy?"

The question mark is there because not everyone accepts that equality is a significant value in our moral and intellectual foundations. His interest in the topic has been stimulated by reading Matthew Stewart, Nature's God: The Heretical Origins of the American Republic.

Doors open at 9:00am for optional breakfast ($5) and socializing.

We enjoy the company of our fellow Humanists and a lecture from a guest speaker and topic discussion ending by 11:30 a.m. Our meetings are free and open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Humanism.

Breakfast is offered for sale to members and guests for $5.00. For coffee only, the charge is $1.00. If you would like to have coffee and/or food, please pay at the welcome desk by the entrance door. Of course, donations are always gratefully accepted as well.
