Tomorrow: Koyré on Physics and Philosophy!

19 Jul

Join us tomorrow for our first discussion of philosophy and physics, as we look at Koyré’s classic text From the Closed World to the Infinite Universe, chapter 2.

As always, the text is available as a pdf HERE.

We will be meeting at 7:00pm at Tender Bar + Kitchen, in Lawrenceville (4300 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA 15201)

As a reminder, even though we have moved to thematic groups, there is no expectation that people participate in every week, so even if you can’t commit to the whole summer, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.
