Our next topic for 03/09/08 will be:
The future of Rationality in Education and the Public at Large.
How can education and general acceptance of critical thinking, scientific methodology, scepticism, rationalism and logic be improved?
Is advocacy or education the answer or can they work in concert?
Should this even be asked?
What is currently being done around Australia and the world as a whole and what seems to be working?
While we hardly expect to solve these problems (?) the questions are all well worth asking and this should be a great night of discussion with snacks provided!
To add to our discussion we will also feature footage from Jayson’s recent trip to Sydney for the Ultimo Science Festival featuring Michael Shermer, as well as Kylie Sturgess interview with the originators of the “Philosophy for Children” program.
Should be a really interesting night and I hope you can all make it and as always feel free to bring anyone who might be interested.
