First of all a big THANK YOU to all those who sent me greetings for
Christmas and the new year. And of course wishing you a happy Christmas
and the best for next year.
This Sunday we are discussing "The ability of Human beings to adapt". In
deed adapting is not only a necessity for us but unfortunately it can be
a very painful experience. Take recent history where the media had to
adapt to the way news of events is distributed to the population. The
population, that is, who like to be kept up to date. Politicians have to
adapt themselves unfortunately for them at super lighting speed or at
least at the speed their intimate secrets can be posted on the internet.
Even philosophers have to adapt, not only do we now have more
opportunities to do philosophy but we also have to accept the fact that
philosophy must first and foremost be about human beings in the real world.
Talking about the real world Ceit and Brian suggested we meet Saturday
(Christmas) to go to the Cinema. Their choice of "Mao's last dancer"
seems to be a really good one, or at least that's what I've been told by
those who saw the film. These are the details:
Mao's last dancer (El Ultimo Bailarin De Mao)
Meet 18:45 – 19:00 at Renoir Plaza España show 20:30
C/ Martin De Los Heros, 12, 28005 Madrid, España - 915 413 914
The idea for meeting early is to make sure we find tickets and then
maybe go for a quick drink near by.
Finally, Peter is still looking for a flat mate:
------- Peter has asked me once again to remind you that he is looking
for someone to share his flat with in Mostoles close to public
transport; very good conditions. Central heating and central hot water.
There two rooms to rent out: a single and a double: tel 609257259 (LJCB

All the best and see you Saturday and/or Sunday
