This is a group for anyone who wants to continue learning and research outside traditional academia. People of all educational backgrounds are welcome. Only a desire to study is required. We emphasize mathematics, computer science, natural science, social science, history, philosophy, literature, religion, and languages. We will meet once a week to discuss our intellectual pursuits and provide support. Also we intend to set up a weekly great books club where we read, discuss, and write about a great book.
