Science and Philosophy Seminar
The Science and Philosophy Seminar meets most Fridays during the academic year on the ESCC campus. The Science and Philosophy Seminar is rigorously informal. There are no by-laws, no elected officers, no membership fees, no initiation rituals, and no secret handshakes. The sole requirement for membership in the Seminar is a commitment to make a presentation to the group at least once every two years, or arrange for and host a presentation by an outside expert. Members who have made five or more presentations are free of this requirement. Regular meetings are held on Fridays at 12:30 PM, from October through May. Most often presentations run about one hour in length and are followed by open informal discussions. Examples of subjects which have been presented are: “Sub-prime Mortgage Credit Crunch”, “17th Century Virginia Indians”, “Fractals and Nature”, “Decisions, Decisions… The Cuban Missile Crisis”, “The Delicate Issue of Russian Backwardness”, and “Organic Fruit Horticulture”.
