Our Second Meeting

Well, my "History of Humanism" didn't get much beyond 1800. I began with the precepts of Ptah Hotep, followed by some account of Greek and Renaissance Humanism, and began on the Deists and the enlightenment, particularly Voltaire and the Calas and Barre tragedies. Perhaps 19th Century Humanism will be the subject for another day.

I tried out a little projector I bought a few days before; it's little more than a toy but does the job adequately for a small meeting. We welcomed two new members, Lesley and Verra. A date of 9th April was provisionally set for the next meeting. This will be more of an open discussion meeting, although with a short introduction on a definite topic.
