On Sunday, November 11, 2012 FS welcomes Stuart Jordan at the Free Library of Philadelphia.

1901 Vine Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

His speech, “Toward a Better Human Future,” will assess how well enlightenment goals have been realized today in the United States and globally. Jordan will welcome dialogue with the audience and the room being used is conducive for such interaction.

Please meet at 2:00 PM in the Skyline Room located on the fourth floor of the library.

Dr. Jordan is a retired senior staff scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and is currently president and board member of the Institute for Science and Human Values (ISHV). He holds doctorates in physics and astrophysics and is a Rhodes scholar. His book, The Enlightenment Vision — Science, Reason, and the Promise of a Better Future, is due to be published at end of this year.

The Institute for Science and Human Values (ISHV) was founded by Paul Kurtz, and is committed to the enhancement of human values and scientific inquiry. This combines both compassion and reason in realizing ethical wisdom. It focuses on the principles of personal integrity: individual freedom and responsibility. It includes a commitment to social justice, planetary ethics, and developing shared values for the human family.  For more information on ISHV, visit their website.
