Meeting Announcement: Monday 6/13 @ 8:00pm Eastern

Our regular open call will take place tonight, Monday 6/13, at 8:00pm eastern time via Skype. To join in please send us a contact request on Skype by searching for our account name amateursociety. If you have any questions or need clarification, please drop us a line on the contact page here or email us directly at amateursociety@gmail.com.

This evening we will be touching on the Orlando attack as well as current events in economics before turning to our central topic of the evening: modernity. The definition of words is extremely important to our worldviews, and many pivotal misunderstandings can arise from a lack of perspective on various key concepts. Simply put, every subsequent generation considers itself ‘modern’ simply because they are the present and the rest of history is past. We need to be careful when we draw these linguistic lines or else we risk having tunnel vision about the past. When we fall into that trap our understanding of history suffers, and when we fail to understand history we will make the same mistakes as previous generations despite our enlightened, ‘modern’ viewpoint.

We welcome your participation in an open, honest conversation where everyone is encouraged to share their thoughts and ask questions we don’t typically investigate. Thanks for your time and we look forward to speaking with you!

-Steven
