Chapter 17: Unsustainable – The Beginning of Infinity Reading Group (Members Only)

October 9, 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.”

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 17: Unsustainable. Are static societies doomed to failure? Where did Karl Marx, Friederich Engels, and Jared Diamond go wrong in their “ultimate explanations?” How does Jacob Broniwski’s “The Ascent of Man” relate the the beginning of infinity? Come discuss these and further questions with other curious minds.

This is a members only event. Please sign in to RSVP.
