Chapter 15: The Evolution of Culture – The Beginning of Infinity Reading Group (Members Only)

August 28, 2022 at 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Join members of the “Gödel, Escher, Bach” book club in reading through David Deutsch’s “The Beginning of Infinity.” Share the pleasure of wrestling with a challenging, thought-provoking book with the help of friendly peers’ additional eyes, hearts, minds, and experiences.

Maybe you heard about it on Naval‘s podcast, or perhaps you follow the father of quantum computing himself on Twitter. However you’ve become acquainted with the book, join A. Lowell Richardson and other members of the Gödel, Escher, Bach crew in exploring David Deutsch’s acclaimed The Beginning of Infinity, an “exploration of the nature and progress of knowledge.”

Our 15-salon series continues with Chapter 15: The Evolution of Culture. How do memes survive and propagate? How are the evolution of memes and genes related? Does the non-existence of the hobgoblin serve to make the meme a better replicator, unconstrained by any genuine, grounded menace? Come discuss these and further questions with other curious minds.
