ROY BHASKAR’S ‘ENLIGHTENED COMMON SENSE’ AND ‘FROM SCIENCE TO EMANCIPATION’ – READING GROUP

“One of the most influential voices in the philosophy of science and a political revolutionary”. David Graeber

Roy Bhaskar reading group

On the first meeting of the Roy Bhaskar reading group we will introduce two books – ‘Enlightened common sense’ and ‘From science to emancipation’ – and will discuss the form this reading group will take over the coming weeks.

For the first session we will be discussing the first chapter of “Enlightened Common Sense” and the introduction to “From Science to Emancipation.” Both texts are pretty short and will give us a flavour of what’s to come. You can access the texts here.

Also, during the call we will discuss the following:

  • reading: decide between ECS and FStE
  • do we want a single discussion moderator, a rotating moderator, or just come in with our own questions to discuss?
  • schedule: choose a schedule that works for us all
  • anything else.
