What is the Humanist responsibility to social welfare?

Event: Inquiring Minds Discussion Group

May 07th, 2016 9:30 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Topic: What is the Humanist responsibility to social welfare?

I have no idea where this topic will take us, but it should be interesting. We all have different views on what the tenets of Humanism are and this could end up being a very lively discussion.

If you are interested, a group of us like to go out to lunch afterward. We will wrap up the meeting around noon so you just might be hungry by then.

If anybody can get there early, by around 9:00, I will need help setting up tables and chairs. I'm not supposed to lift anything heavy right now. Much appreciated.

Do some research on your own if you like and find some articles or links to help with the discussion and feel free to post related articles in the comments section on Meetup.

The Geography of Genius

Event: Book Club

May 28th, 2016 10:00 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Join us to discuss The Geography of Genius: A Search for the World's Most Creative Places from Ancient Athens to Silicon Valley by Erich Weiner

from Amazon...
....acclaimed travel writer Weiner sets out to examine the connection between our surroundings and our most innovative ideas. He explores the history of places, like Vienna of 1900, Renaissance Florence, ancient Athens, Song Dynasty Hangzhou, and Silicon Valley, to show how certain urban settings are conducive to ingenuity. And, with his trademark insightful humor, he walks the same paths as the geniuses who flourished in these settings to see if the spirit of what inspired figures like Socrates, Michelangelo, and Leonardo remains. In these places, Weiner asks, “What was in the air, and can we bottle it?”

If you purchase this book from Amazon through the Amazon Smile program, HSGP will benefit. Click on the link below.

Topic: What would an alternative economic system look like?

The subtopic on this is "What would happen if we eradicated the monetary system" but, as always, the discussion could cover a wide range of possibilities. What problems could be solved? What challenges would we encounter? There are so many different ways to look at this and I'm sure we will come up with some very provocative ideas. Maybe we can solve a host of the world's problems with such an idea. I hope you can join us!

Event: Inquiring Minds Discussion Group

December 03rd, 2016 9:30 am - Saturday


Location: Humanist Community Center, 627 W Rio Salado Parkway, Mesa

Topic: What would an alternative economic system look like?

The subtopic on this is "What would happen if we eradicated the monetary system" but, as always, the discussion could cover a wide range of possibilities. What problems could be solved? What challenges would we encounter? There are so many different ways to look at this and I'm sure we will come up with some very provocative ideas. Maybe we can solve a host of the world's problems with such an idea. I hope you can join us!

If you are interested, a group of us like to go out to lunch afterward. We will wrap up the meeting around noon so you just might be hungry by then.

If anybody can get there early, by around 9:00, I will need help setting up tables and chairs. I'm not supposed to lift anything heavy right now. Much appreciated.

Do some research on your own if you like and find some articles or links to help with the discussion and feel free to post related articles in the comments section on Meetup.
