Reading Group: The Thing!

8 Nov

READING GROUP:

Join us tomorrow (Monday) night at 8:00pm as we continue our Halloween-season series, “PHILOSOPHY and HORROR,” with a discussion of the preface and first chapter of Dylan Trigg’s The Thing.

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

We will be meeting at 3929 Cabinet Way, Pittsburgh (BYOB) until we can establish a more permenant location.

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 Fall, you are still more than welcome to join us when you can.

OTHER EVENTS THIS WEEK:

11/12, 4:30pm: Dr. Jay Lampert, “Visual Effects and the Phenomenology of Perceptual Control” –207 College Hall, Duquesne University.

OTHER NEWS:

The Partially Examined Life’s Q+A and live podcast from this year’s Pittsburgh Continental Philosophy Conference (un)commons: theory and public space are now up and can be found on itunes or at PEL’s site: HERE.
