An Age of Reason or Dogmatism? The Role of Science in Public Discourse. Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled a seminar, “An Age of Reason or Dogmatism? The Role of Science in Public Discourse.” Dick Snyder will lead the Seminar and will discuss how, in an age dismissive dogmatism, engaging in civil debate about controversial topics seems to elude us, and though science can help, it is often misunderstood or misused for political purpose. Snyder is Director of the VIMS Eastern Shore Laboratory in Wachapreague, and Professor of Marine Sciences at VIMS, College of William and Mary.
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website www.SciPhi.org shortly before a scheduled date. Science and Philosophy Seminar is an informally organized group that meets more or less regularly to explore and discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from philosophical speculation to scientific research.

Despite almost trashing it, she’s now convinced it’s a lost masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. But when world-class art expert Lionel Percy flies over from New York and arrives at her trailer home in Bakersfield to authenticate the painting, he has no idea what he is about to discover.
