4/9 Salons

This week we’ll be learning about the Age of  Enlightenment thinkers of 18th century Europe. We will be preparing to host a salon on Friday.

The popular web site “Salon” is a nod to these earlier parties where hosts brought in the best of the best. These days it describes itself as:

“Salon is the leading progressive news site, combining award-winning commentary and reporting on the most important issues of the day. “

Similar to today’s “Ted Talks” where individuals share their intellectual ideas and others discuss them and are entertained by them. Consider this one about ethical animal behavior.
