Many of us have very little real philosophy background. Some have very deep backgrounds in the subject. What is your level of experience with the subject of philosophy?

I have a PhD, which we all know does NOT mean philosophy, but hopefully does say something about a dedication to learning! My experience with philosophy is basically reading, membership in the Alaskan Humanist Society for years, familiarity with the Sceptic Society, and participating in "The Amazing Meeting" in Las Vegas this fall. 1600 athiests, agnostics, and sceptics in one place at the same time...wow!

Do you have a favorite philosopher/ school or subcategory of philosophy / book? If so, please list:

No favorites

What meetup topics or texts would most interest you?

Philosophy as expressed in opera, theatre, and the visual arts Since the Ring is being repeated this spring at Lensic (HD from the Met) it might be fun to partner with the Santa Fe Wagner Society in a discussion of the philosophical basis of the Ring.

Introduction

I'm a compulsive learner and terminally curious about what is, how we decide what is, and the interface between culture, science, philosophy, psychology, theology, personality individuality, and the varied ways we create and/or find meaning in life.

What Mim is saying about this Meetup Group

One of the best learning opportunities in town!
