Socrates Café: How does our consciousness affect our view of science?

At our November meeting, we discussed Consciousness in its many forms.  This month we will discuss hoe our consciousnesses are extending into the realms of science.  We will review the scientific method and how our perceptions, by way of our consciousnesses, affect our attitudes about science and technology.  Is one person’s science another person’s bunkum?  How can we avoid junk science and what is it anyway? Join us for a lively exchange of ideas on Tuesday, December 1st, at 6:30 p.m. at the Bloomsburg Public Library.

N.B.  Not attending November’s meeting won’t affect your enjoyment in December!
