Dear Friends of the George Santayana Society,

This is the last post in this series of news from the GSS for the start of 2017. We shall continue to keep you informed over the next few months.

Santayana in China

The George Santayana Society has the opportunity to participate in the World Congress of Philosophy in Beijing, China from August 13-20, 2018. The theme of the conference is “Learning to Be Human.” Santayana certainly had much to say about that topic, so it would be great to have several papers addressing that topic, especially those that might address ideas about human liberty. To confirm a place, we need to have at three speakers. So far, we have two tentative speakers. If you have any inkling that you might be interested, please let me know.

Clarification: membership dues are not required to be on this mailing list

The notice at the bottom of this list says you receive it because of your membership in the George Santayana Society. Nevertheless, dues are not required in order to receive these letters and other notifications. Nor are they required to view and download copies of Overhead in Seville: The Bulletin of the George Santayana Society. You can have access to the latest issue at http://www.iupui.edu/~santedit/sant/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/2016-Bulletin-1.pdf. Dues need to be paid to receive the printed version of the Bulletin and to vote at the annual business meeting, which will be next held in January in Savannah, Georgia in conjunction with the 2018 Eastern APA meeting. We shall notify you when the website is set up to receive payments.
