Group Description

We provide here a place to Discuss and Examine the Great Ideas found in Classic Books of Philosophical and Psychological Significance. Our Discussions, by book, will generally run for two weeks (for larger Books an entire month.)

So far we've had sustained and studious discussion on the works of Nietzsche, Plato, Freud, Aristotle, Einstien, Kant, Carlos Castaneda, Hamilton, Dostoevsky, Chardin, Descartes, and the I Ching. Other upcommming writers, if popular vote elects them, may include: Confucius, Swedenborg, Jung, Epictetus, or other important philosophical works.

Our Current Reading List:

David Rabe's "Hurlyburly" (1)

(1) Easily attainable by order at your local library. (2-6 days)
(2) Requires an Inter-Library loan. Please order 2-3 weeks in advance! This is usually aquired by emailing a libraian to order the book. Usually it is at your librarys homepage, click on (something like) "Ask a Libraian" and ask for the book.

It is recommended that our members achieve a state of "Active Reading". This might entail actively discussing parts of the book which strike your attention as they come up... Our books will be somewhat heavy, it will be helpful to have the parts out which you would like to discuss, then to go on and discuss them.

Threads may continue (or be hashed up) after the designated time for discussion...

Some discussion tips: 1. Ask questions! 2. Articulate your opinion. 3. Elucidate your understanding. 4. Support your tangental thoughts. 5. Develope the ideas. 6. Establish Relevance. Etc...

Note: Use your "Rich-Text Editors" along with a choice of pleasant writing fonts.
