Monthly Meeting October 1, 2016

  • Westport Coffee House 4010 Pennsylvania Avenue Kansas City, MO, 64111 United States (map)

I'll give a short report on a long (112 pp) paper by DeGraff and Smith, "Reclaiming the Enlightenment and Imagining a New Social World: Grounding Normativity", for which I forwarded a digital file previously.  Rather than laboriously toil through this, I try to hit its main points in around 15 minutes.

Also I ordered and received copies of the big new book from Verso, Grand Hotel Abyss, by Stuart Jeffries.  I'll have these for sale at $20, less than I paid for them.  This is a kind of overview of the Frankfurt School, with an emphasis on the biographies of its leading lights.

Lucky has been developing new ideas for our website and how to extend its reach, so I hope we can get a report on that.
