Liberal Arts Reading Group, Sept. 28

For the past few weeks, our little liberal arts reading group has been discussing Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges' Labyrinths. One of the recurring themes seems to be the nature of time (see, for example, "The library of Babel" and "The Garden of Forking Paths").

So I think it would be fun for us to read an article from
Nautilus magazine entitled Albert Einstein and Henri Bergson's Great Showdown About the Nature of Time . As is apparent from the title, this article describes the early 20th century debates between a famous psychologist named Henri Bergson and the physicist Albert Einstein.

Let's meet at 4pm, as usual. The Ebeling have kindly offered to host. I hope to see you all there!
