    Contact: Joyce May   401-434-2453   eplibraryjoyce@yahoo.com
   

Meeting of the Minds, a new daytime discussion series, continues in May.  Open to adults of all ages, Meeting of the Minds is a two-hour forum for discussion and exchange of ideas both contemporary and timeless.

The discussion format has two segments: the first hour focuses on a topic of political, social, and/or cultural interest drawn from the news of the day; the second on matters of philosophical interest which have been considered through the ages.  Philosophical questions may include inquiries such as “What is art?” and/or “Are there natural, universal human rights?” The process is intended to be one of civil, respectful engagement in a spirit of cooperative inquiry rather than disputation and argument.  There are no requirements other than an open mind and a willingness to listen to, entertain, and engage with the ideas of others.

The moderator, Mr. Ron Massa, will choose the topics.  Mr. Massa began leading Meeting of the Minds groups two years ago and has had successful series in both Barrington and Warwick. This program is free and open to all. Call 434-2453 to register.
