We will be reading and discussing: The Big Questions: Tackling the Problems of Philosophy with Ideas from Mathematics, Economics and Physics by Samuel E. Landsberg. The book is available in hardcover, paperback, and Kindle from Amazon & other sellers. Steven Landsburg uses concepts from mathematics, economics, and physics to address the big questions in philosophy: What is real or Are there limits to what we can know? If you are interested in avoiding summer brain rot, buy the book (paperback version PLEASE) (or Kindle will do) and join in the discussion.
