What we're about

This group is dedicated to in-depth conversation focused on specific readings in philosophy. We cover everything from Plato to Dennett. We love wisdom, and we love discussing it. If you are interested in learning more about philosophy, we hope you sign up for one of our events. Our only stipulation is that everyone coming to our meetings has done the reading in advance.

Book Club Potluck - The Physicist and the Philosopher

Needs a location

Karl will host our discussion of The Physicist and the Philosopher: Einstein, Bergson, and the debate that changed our understanding of time by Jimena Canales. Karl suggested this book.

The other option for next month is Charley's pick. See the October 28 Meetup. For December, we'll be reading Richard's pick: A Thousand Brains - A New Theory of Intelligence by Jeff Hawkins, and Alan's pick: What We Owe the Future by William MacAskill.

Since we are always planning ahead, I've started the survey for our Meetups two months out. To complete the survey, follow this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfF2MNUE0GYyje9R2qWiCCYiLklz8OzDSCT1GEIlRtLXjmnyQ/viewform?usp=pp_url&entry.927282479=3&entry.2132522475=3&entry.533454022=3&entry.1554174553=3&entry.1191171028=3&entry.794147353=3.

Anyone who is a member of this Meetup can submit a title for the survey. Just send me an email ([masked]), and I'll add your selection. However, I will only include one title from each member. If you submitted a title last month, I've rolled it over into the new survey. If you want to change your recommendation, please let me know.

As always, it's essential that everyone who comes to the meeting reads the book in its entirety.

Happy reading!
