Deprecated: Function eregi_replace() is deprecated in /home/elispe5/rationalists.org/lib.php on line 196
In this presentation Dr. Greenberg explores the idea of “truth” as something humans can posses. It involves the outcome of two vital biological processes, which impart more-or-less confidence in our belief about reality. In the course of the talk he outlines the neurobiological events that lead to these attributions, the forces that effect their integrated functions, and what happens when they become dysfunctional.
Discussion starts at 10:30 at Pellissippi State Technical Community College, Goins Administration Building, Cafeteria Annex. Come early for snacks and fellowship.
Dave Buck and Mleeka Learn Houston will lead the children in a discussion of the books, “Ellla Sarah Gets Dressed,” by Margaret Chodos-Irvine and “Ella the Elegant Elephant” by Carmela D'amico. Both have to do with choosing your own style.
Dave and Mleeka will follow the story with a craft activity.
