Community Salon happening tonight
- Published: June 9, 2016
Is cooperation innate to humans? How did it evolve and why has it persisted? Villagers are invited to explore these and related questions tonight, Thursday, June 9, at a Community Salon hosted by nonprofit group Community Solutions.
The salon will open with a short presentation by villager George Coder, a retired environmental educator with the U.S. EPA. Coder will reflect on the work of several authors about the development of human cooperation, including “The Biology of Belief” by Bruce Lipton, “The Evolution of Cooperation” by Robert Axelrod, “The Selfish Gene” by Peter Dawkins and books by Daniel Quinn. Following the presentation, attendees are encouraged to discuss ideas and share observations sparked by the material. Light refreshments will be served.
Tonight’s Community Salon begins at 7 p.m. in Community Solutions’ new offices, in the back of the Sontag Fels Building on the Antioch College campus. Access is off the rear parking lot on East South College Street.
The June 9 gathering is the first of a series of topical salons Community Solutions plans to host. These small group conversations sparked by a short presentation will engage themes of interest to Community Solutions members. All villagers are invited to attend. The second Community Salon is tentatively scheduled for July 28. Call 767-2161 for further information.
