"The Last Man Who Knew Everything": Interview of author David N. Schwartz
The Freethought Society and the Philadelphia Ethical Society (PES) invite you to an event highlighting the work of author David N. Schwartz. This event is free and open-to-the-public. PES Leader Hugh Taft-Morales will interview Schwartz about his book The Last Man Who Knew Everything. Schwartz’s book and presentation are about the fascinating life and incredible work of Enrico Fermi, who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1938. Attend this presentation to learn how Fermi’s work is hailed and respected by so many. --- Schwartz holds a PhD in political science from MIT and is the author of two previous books. He has worked at the State Department Bureau of Politico-Military Affairs and at Goldman Sachs in a variety of roles in both London and New York. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1988 was awarded jointly to Schwartz’s father Melvin Schwartz, Jack Steinberger and Leon M. Lederman “for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino.”

What we're about

PATH - Phoenixville Atheists, Thinkers & Humanists.

This group is for people who formerly or never believed in gnomes, goblins and gods to meet up and be openly faithless. In and around Phoenixville there are almost as many churches as there are car dealerships and far more churches than coffee shops or bookstores.

Though we aren't affiliated with this group we align closely with this mission: "The mission of Openly Secular is to eliminate discrimination and increase acceptance by getting secular people - including atheists, freethinkers, agnostics, humanists and nonreligious people - to be open about their beliefs."
