March Philosophical Discussion Group

  • Mar 18, 2015 · 5:30 PM

This is a recurring meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

We have free form philosophical discussions during these meetings.  I encourage people to bring a topic if they have something they wish to discuss.

Please try to be on time for the meeting.  I do understand that sometimes things happen that are not in our control, but I find it very distracting when people come in late and I feel it tends to interrupt the flow of discussion.  If you're going to be late, please post here if you can so that we know to expect someone to come in late.

If you are on the waiting list for the discussion, please check the meetup site the afternoon of the meeting and see if you have moved up to the attending list since people often cancel at the last minute.

Thank you all for your insightful input to the discussions.  I truly enjoy them.

    I had a good time with very nice intellectual folk.

    I just looked at the directions and its further than I thought. Doubt I'll be able to make it. Tired (allergies, not contagious.)

    If it was at the old Market of Choice at 29th location, I would go. Probably the case in the future too, if it stays so far away I don't know if I can get there often.

    So please put in my "vote" that we return to that location at Market of Choice in the future. The group was very successful there for a long time too.

    And if people really don't want south Eugene, can we at least look into a more central location? I know of a couple near downtoen or campus, though I think M of C is the best.

    I also happended to speak to someone in the group (doesn't seem to be going today) who also said she preferred Market of Choice at 29th. Another "vote"? :)

    Also, returning to the old 6 PM (or later) time. We changed for the wine location, which is no longer the relevant. It's hard for people to get someplace at 5:30 with work and/or dinner.

    Thanks.

    Apple Orchard was overbooked by the property manager The new location is Greenleaf community Center (about 200 ft from Apple Orchard) The address is 2755 Lone Oak. Park in the same place you would for Apple Orchard. Glad I double checked or we would be helping a bunch of local kids in their homework club.

    Would've like to come to see how the future shapes up, but I'm really under the weather today. Will look to see what's posted for the future.

    March 18, 2015

  • Lynn

    Good to see the group is continuing. Joseph, and/or Elizabeth, are you willing to organize? Hope so, sounds good. Guess we can discuss the future location at the next meeting. I'll be interested to see the community room. Thanks for arranging it.

  • Joseph S.

    I figured we could hold the March meeting at Apple Orchard (2670 Edgewood Dr. Eugene) talk after the meeting about who wants to be organizer and where regular meetings will be held. If anyone else has preferences, now would be the time to speak up or at the March meeting.

    March 15, 2015

  • Joseph S.

    having trouble with my main computer. I don't see my last posting. Lyn? You out there?

    March 15, 2015

  • Joseph S.

    My main computer is currently not available so I have clunked together some components I had in the spare room closet and might have missed some messages. The Apple Orchard Community Room is located at 2670 Edgewood Dr. in Eugene.
    Lynn did you want to contact the social club organizers? I figured we could use Apple Orchard for the March meeting and finalize any decisions during or after the meeting as far as who will be the organizer and where the meetings will be regularly held. If anyone else wants to chime in, now would be the time. Or show up and the March meeting and make your preferences known.

    Hi everyone. Here is the address of where the meetup will be:
    Apple Orchard Room
    2670 Edgewood Drive
    Eugene OR

    See you there!

    March 15, 2015

  • Rach

    Glad to see you are getting it worked out. Just a reminder that someone needs to contact the Book and Social Club Organizers and ask to be made an assistant organizer so you can change the meetups as necessary.

    Can't wait to see everyone at the next meetup! Reminder, we will be at the Apple Orchard Conference Room. Email Joseph Sams for directions. Bring a topic!

    March 14, 2015

  • Joseph S.

    I can always book the Apple Orchard Conference Room here off River Road by Fred Meyer. I'm certainly willing to host future meetings as well or cooperate with others.

    March 12, 2015

    • Rach

      Thank you, Joseph! I will leave you and Lynn to hash this out. I have deleted the location for this meeting and will do that for any future meetings, too. Then it's up you all to figure it out. :-) Enjoy the discussions! I may be back from time to time, I just cannot host it right now.

      March 12, 2015

    • Joseph S.

      Lynn, I will book Apple Orchard, its free and always open and seems like its closer for most people than Market of Choice.

      March 13, 2015

  • Lynn

    If Charles or someone else wants to host, great! Please speak up.
    If not I'd be willing to ( for March or longer term). I can call Market of Choice, our former location, and see if the date is available. I think there were some advantages there anyway...the seating arrangement may have made conversation easier. And the parking felt safer at night, speaking as a woman.

    March 11, 2015

    • Rach

      Lynn, if you want to do this long term, please contact the organizers of the group and ask to be made an assistant organizer so you can handle the details with Meetup.

      March 12, 2015

  • Rach

    OK, last chance for someone to volunteer to take over. I will cancel this meetup and all future meetups tomorrow unless I hear from someone.

    March 11, 2015

    • Charles T.

      Instead of canceling it yet, why don't those of us going to next weeks meetup discuss at that meeting what we want to do. Is there anything you would need us to do in preparation for this next meetup? Is the Wine Cellars already booked?

      March 11, 2015

    • Rach

      The Wine Cellar is not booked. I had other things going on and didn't book it yet. Lou let me know that they have something else booked that day but we might be able to use their barrel room. I did say below that someone could volunteer to host March's meeting if they wanted to. Are you volunteering? To host you would need to find a place, let me know what it is, and then bring a topic to the meeting if you want. People can also dialog here about what they want to do.

      March 11, 2015

  • Rach

    Because of all I have going on in my life right now, I'm looking for someone to take over as event host for this meetup on a semi-permanent (at least 6 months) and possibly permanent basis. Please message me if you are interested in this. Also message me if you are interested in hosting March's meetup but not in being semi-permanent/permanent host of the meetup. Thanks!

    I know I said I'd provide the topic for March, but I've got something else that night. I'll save my topic for April.

      Anyone want to talk about the failure to fund homeland security because immigration couldn't be attached to the bill? or the wisdom behind inviting the head of a foreign nation to address congress and bad mouth the president?

      February 28, 2015

    • Lyn D.

      For myself, the Republicans in Congress these days are an enormously depressing topic, and they have lacked any "wisdom" that isn't connected to dollar signs for the corporate and wealthy.
