On October 6, Charley Dewberry will give the first talk in the series “It’s Complicated: The Histories Behind What We Think We Know.”

Different economic perspectives (free-market capitalism vs. socialism) form one of the major pillars in the current polarity within Western culture, especially in the United States. This class will examine how we got here, what the major sources of the disagreement are, and propose some means for resolving—or at least minimizing—the conflict.

Charley Dewberry is a tutor and the dean at Gutenberg College, a practicing scientist and stream ecologist, and the author of Saving Science: A Critique of Science and Its Role in Salmon Recovery (2004) and Intelligent Discourse: Exposing the Fallacious Standoff Between Evolution and Intelligent Design (2006). He has a M.A. in fisheries and wildlife and a Ph.D. in philosophy with an emphasis on philosophy of science.

This class may be attended in person at Gutenberg College or online via Zoom. There is no charge for in-person attendance. There is a small charge for remote attendance. Registration is required to attend via Zoom.
