Sunday 23 October
"Buddhist General Semantics

A New Approach to Buddhist Religion and its Philosophy.  We considered how this ancient religion (or “a-theism”) is still alive and growing, in light of Bruce Kodish’s book that we studied in April, the (hypothetical) visits by the Buddha himself, and Alfred Korzybski’s G.S. formulations.

Sunday 20 November
"Behavioural Change via Changing Our Premises"

We used Differential Diagnosis to go from the faulty theory T1 to the faulty premise P1.  This is then changed to a better premise P2, from which logically flows the better theory T2.  It was, indeed, a challenging day!

Led by David.
