Akron Branch Monthly Meeting: “The Nature of Time”, by Vern WestfallDate:
Monday, November 5
Stow Munroe Falls Library
3512 Darrow Road
Stow, OH 44224 US
Center for Inquiry Northeast Ohio
The Akron-Canton branch monthly meeting at the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library, 3512 Darrow Rd., 7 pm, will feature a talk by Vern Westfall on the subject of “The Nature of Time”. His talk will be a general presentation of our changing perspectives regarding time, how we define time, how time defines itself, and how time defines us as humans. The presentation includes audience participation, and consists primarily of anecdotes, and interesting but little-known facts (not lengthy scientific explanations).
Vern has had a long career outside of science in the military, in industry as an engineer, and in teaching and architecture, all the while pursuing a decades-long interest in science and the history of science. Vern is a published author of several books, including “Darwin’s Paw”, and “The Philosophical Pilot”. He has a degree in philosophy from Miami University, and attended the Air Force Academy.
As usual, anyone interested in continuing the discussion after the meeting is welcome to join us up the street at the Stow Beef O’Brady’s over drinks or a late dinner. We hope you can join us for this interesting and enlightening event. See you there!
