Understanding Science

Eugene/Springfield–This study group presents outstanding introductory college-level DVD science courses, and discusses related ideas and information among group members. No specialized knowledge is required to appreciate these excellent lectures.

The lectures are only mildly cumulative in nature, and if you are occasionally unable to attend, this fact should not impede your enjoyment of the course. Decisions concerning specific course subjects are made by a majority vote of the group on a quarterly basis. Emphasis is placed on the natural and the formal sciences, but consideration is also given to a broader perspective that includes the philosophy of science, and the social, behavioral, and applied sciences.

Meets first, third and fifth Tuesdays.
