The Philosophical Society continues its thirteenth year of exploring useful knowledge and the integration of the sciences. In all previous semesters, presentations and stimulating discussions were held in areas of physical science, engineering, medical science, natural science, and social science.
The Society has no fixed subject or topic. Any topic in the sciences is fair game; however, we leave politics and theology to other classes. The society has no permanent instructor. Members and guest speakers who are knowledgeable in the topic for that session make presentations. It has been our experience that the presentations are well-prepared and intellectually stimulating, and the discussion periods (while not descending quite to anarchy) are equally stimulating and great fun.
Class moderator is Bob Olson.
Eight sessions: Fridays, 11:00 a.m. - 12:10 p.m., June 12, 19, 26, July 10, 17, 24, 31 and August 7
