The Philosophy Club Presents: uPHSRG’s First Fall17 Meeting (19 October, 2017)

uPHSRG is back and ready to read some medieval texts!  This quarter will begin with reading Kepler’s Astronomia Nova, a foundational work in the history of astronomy and physics.  Our first meeting will be this Thursday, the 19th of October in the Science Studies Conference Room (HSS 3025).  We will listen to a brief talk on Kepler and his philosophical and scientific context, and then discuss how we want to tackle the text.  There is no required reading, so just come and enjoy yourself and the oreos!

Free food and movie! Come join us for a horror movie night in the philosophy department Seminar Room, HSS 7077 at 7pm! We’ll be watching an episode from the TV series, Black Mirror. Black Mirror can be described as a modern day “Twilight Zone” that focuses on the dark and unexpected consequences of new technologies. If anyone is interested, we’ll also be holding a discussion afterwards to talk about some philosophical topics pertinent to the episode. Food and refreshments will be provided- please participate in the poll on the Facebook event page so we know what kind of food to get. Everyone is welcome! October 28th, save the date! We look forward to seeing you there!
