Ed's Reading/Goodness/Female Philosophers

(P1) Poetical

Ed Coletti's Next Reading

Why not stop by and hear me, among others, read some of my poetry at So Ho in Petaluma at 6:30 PM Tuesday, October 17th. Lamentably, this will be one of the last poetry readings at So Ho which will be closing its doors forever on October 25th. Let's give this wonderful little jazz, art, and poetry venue a rousing send off! Synchronistically, the theme on the 17th will be "Give 'em Hell!"

Women Are Philosophers Too

Hi Ed!

I've always enjoyed the writings of Ayn Rand and am happy to see her on your list. Her book "Anthem" is available free on-line at the Project Gutenberg website, http://www.gutenberg.org.

I suspect a little digging on the site may uncover writings of the other older philosophers on your list.

Alas, reading an Etext is not as comforting as enjoying a book on the couch, but the contents are still of value and the Etexts can easily be downloaded to a PDA.

Regards,

Paul S.
