from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: Social Classes

Dear friends,

Judy (we'll meet her one of these days) has reminded me that this Sunday
is Halloween night. This of course means that I am not sure whether we
are meeting or not. If we're lucky the party (terror) won't start until
9pm or later.
This brings me to Sunday's topic: Social classes. Of course, between the
footy and the ghoul we know that philosophers are right down the pile:
we even meet in the basement!
In the meantime I look forward to meeting you around six thirty (6:30pm)
in or outside Molly Malone's
Take care
Lawrence

from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: Certainties and uncertainties + Maths tertulia

Certainties and uncertainties + Maths tertulia
Dear friends,
This Sunday we are discussing Certainties and uncertainties.
Quite an apt subject in these days we live in.
This brings me an interesting Tertulia that Miguel is organising for
next Tuesday. Given that the tertulia is on Fractals I though you would
also appreciate this link to the Obituary of Benoit-Mandelbrot in the
Telegraph who died on October 14 aged 85.

Estimado tertuliano,
El próximo Martes tendremos Tertulia de Matemáticas con el tema "Objetos
fractales":

Take care and see you soon

from Lawrence, Pub Philosophy Group, Sunday meeting: To Pretend

we start at 18;30pm

Dear friends,
This Sunday we are discussing To Pretend.
A strange subject, I must admit, but certainly a relevant one for a
philosophy discussion. Of course, we can try and pretend to be what
we're not, and sometimes even to pretend we're not what we are. Like all
strategies or games we see some sort of benefit if we try to pretend
something. But equally important is to know when to stop pretending.
In the meantime Ignacio wanted to share with you this funny story as a
consequence of globalisation:
SO FUNNY!! SO TRUE!!
I was recently in Vancouver and decided to learn the Chinese language,
so I could understand the check-outs at McDonalds.
My next move is to learn Indian, so I can understand my doctors and the
person that answers the phone when I have a warranty problem.
Yep, by the time I read this, I was able to understand the 1st line.
"TENJOOBERRYMUDS"... (first line)
The rest is here..... http://tinyurl.com/38ejora

Best Lawrence
