Great Books Discussion Group
Sunday, April 28th, 1:00 â€“ 3:00pm at CafÃ© Ventana (West Pine and Vandeventer)
â€œIn the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.â€ â€œSo Joseph died, being an hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.â€
So begins and ends the April Great Books selection: Genesis from the Hebrew Scriptures. Come explore everything that happens in-between in this seminal work of mythology that describes the awakening and definition of a people.
Alienated Labour by Karl Marx. Marx defines alienation as the separation of things which should be together and the animosity that arises between these things. This work is a study of alienation of the worker (labour) to a capitalistic system. Come explore the thoughts that had a profound effect on the 20th Century with facilitators Margaret Weck and Mike Nolan. (Sign-Up in Fellowship Hall if you would like more information)
