Chapter 9: Optimism – The Beginning of Infinity Reading Group (Members Only)

May 15, 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 9: Optimism. What is the fundamental force behind sustained periods of enlightenment? What is wealth? How do we learn not to fool ourselves? What are blind optimism and blind pessimism? Come discuss these and further questions with other curious minds.

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