Details:  SYSTEMS of SURVIVAL 4 sessions Date: Fridays, Nov 3 - 17 - Dec 1 - 15 Time: 10 am - 12 pm Cost: $40 Leader: Ken Melchin Location: Glengarry Encore Education Ctr. In these sessions we will discuss Jane Jacobs’s book, ‘Systems of Survival’. Participants will be invited to read selected chapters of the book in preparation for the sessions. Jacobs is famous for her efforts to understand the ‘logic’ of community relations and community ‘systems’. She investigates how these ‘systems’ provide a basis for an ethics that would be appropriate for living within these systems. Ken will help you situate Jacobs’s book within some broader social and historical trends and conversations in ethics.
