my addendum notes to the underdetermination meetup

Hi Philosophers!

Well, the meetup last night was indeed heated, and there is some widely felt frustration about what we were able to accomplish. Nevertheless, a fruitful discussion has spawned, and as Jon suggested, maybe the discussion-board format will prove a better venue to unfold the debate. You can see this here:

Anyway, for what it's worth, the ADDENDUM notes and quotes from Larry Laudan are available in pdf format here: 

BTW, as was also discussed last night, I am leaving the area, and the main organizer for the group will be our good friend Victor Munoz, who has been co-organizer up to this point. As well, Gene will be assisting Victor, and anyone interested in lending a hand should contact Victor. 

I will still be around for another month or so, and I will be at Victor's next meetup on the topic of Personal Identity. I couldn't be more happy with the way this group has developed and the amazing wealth of intellect we've been able to attract. Thanks to everyone for being a part of this amazing group and for helping to raise the standard for serious, rational (yet courteous) debate. Genuine philosophy is alive and well in Seattle!
