from Lawrence, SUNDAY PhiloMadrid meeting at 6:30pm: Hunches + News

Dear Friends,

This Sunday we are discussing: Hunches.

An issue for us would be to disentangle the meaning of a hunch from gut
feeling, educated guess, in my opinion, I suspect, I'm sure, I might be
wrong but, if you ask me, and similar expressions. And then move on to
examine whether this is a peculiar expression/word in English or whether
there really are these different shades of opinions.

I am inclined to argue that the fact we have so many expressions
reflects how fine tuned we are with our feelings and beliefs. But more
than anything else these expression betray how powerless and limited we
are at predicting the future. And at predicting facts when we do not
have sufficient knowledge about the issue at hand.

In the meantime Gloria has sent me details about her book:
…..te envío la invitación
de mi tercer libro llamado Concierto para Äcaros y Otras
Mentiras Literarias.
