Sun 23 July
"GS for Skeptics"
What does skepticism and GS have in common?  How can Skeptics benefit from GS formulations?
Led by David Hewson

Sun 3 September
“Learning from others mistakes”
Normally when we talk about “Time-binding” (which means learning from others / previous generations) we usually talk about using their successes and building better theories or bridges, etc, based on them.
At this session we will look at the flip side and see what we can learn from other’s mistakes, errors or incompetence, so as to reduce or not repeat them ourselves.  This has the advantage of not paying the cost of our mistake, if we learn just from our own mistakes.
The seminar will be based on the book "The Psychology of Military Incompetence" and an article “Why do some societies make disastrous decisions”

Led by David Hewson

Sat 11 November
"Time Binding"
One of the foundation concepts of Alfred Korzybski's work, introduced in his "Manhood of Humanity" and developed in "Science and Sanity".  Yet still a powerful and relevant idea for personal, community and global application!
Led by Robert James.
 


Most of the meetings are held at our usual meeting place in Bonnet Bay.  Phone: 9528 3296 for more detailed directions.
