Shimer-in-a-Box Reading Group: Politics and Kinship
Thursday, November 8, 2012, 7:30 PM
Magers & Quinn, 3038 Hennepin Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN 55408
If you're interested in approaching the pervasive questions of today with a sophisticated understanding of their philosophical origins, this book group is for you. The first of three events will be a spirited discussion of politics, morality and kinship. Readings include Sophocles' Antigone and contemporary feminist Judith Butler's book, Antigone's Claim. (Future book club meetings will include a discussion on parental memories, and one on Darwin, language and lingodroids.) All viewpoints welcome.
