Ockham's Cafe: Mondays in Midtown

  • May 6, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Surveillance in a Free Society: Advances in surveillance techniques and the ubiquity of surveillance technologies in our daily lives have given rise to concerns about personal freedom and the right to privacy.  What are the pros and cons of surveillance in a free society?  Do the benefits to society outweigh the concerns?

    Looks like "Mondays in Midtown" is meeting in East Memphis. Is this permanent? Is there a Midtown group?

      Hi Bespy- There are two Ockham's locations currently. The one at Panera listed here and another on Wednesdays in Cordova. MFA does run a book club in the Cooper Young area on Fridays if you are looking for something closer to you:)
