This week we’ll be reading Hannah Arendt’s ideas on Thinking vs. Cognition through “Art and Science, [for] despite their significant and creative sympathies, have undeniably different roles in the human experience. But the question of what those differences are and why they matter — a question which philosophers and physicists alike have attempted to answer — remains a perennial perplexity.”
To explore these concepts more fully, during the meeting we’ll be engaging in some artful science ourselves. Hence, you might not want to wear your best clothes, but do bring your enthusiasm for a good time!

Also included is an interview with Hannah Arendt who rather than describing herself as a Philosopher prefers that of a Political Theorist.
