    Have you ever considered how humanity's past affects our present and what that means for our future? Would you like to?

    Each of these events is not a "lecture", but a "pot-luck of ideas". So we're all invited to contribute, but you don't have to be an expert to be welcome, participate, and enjoy the fellowship of thoughtful people who all agree to be open to divergent ideas and treat each other with respect.

    The events explore the world of ideas, in the broadest sense, including: human evolution, paleoanthropology, and anthropology; evolutionary psychology, brain science, and psychology; mythology, eastern thought, religion, and philosophy; sociology; public policy; history and pre-history; cosmology and the sciences; and the arts and humanities, to name a few. Of special interest are the interconnections among all fields of knowledge and tracing questions about the present and future back to root causes in our past and in who we really are as human beings. Ideally that approach can help us develop constructive, practical approaches we can build into our lives.

    Examples of past and future session topics include:
    * The Nature of Paradoxes (in history, art, comedy, religion, Zen, etc.) * Eric Fromm's The Art of Loving
    * Emotional and Social Intelligence (brain science and the Goleman books)
    * Rationality, Ego, Self, and Wisdom
    * Major Turning Points in Human Evolution and Society
    * Hunter-Gatherers, Communities, and Agriculture
    * Polarity and Compromise in Relationships and Society
    * The Roots of Greed and the Lust for Power
    * Should We Trust Science?

    More information about each session's topic is available at www.Meetup.com/North-Bay-World-of-Ideas. The events are free; however, we ask that you register in advance, either at the above site or on this page.
