Fatal Fundamentalism: How Our Thinking Could Be Leading Us To Extinction
Some Questions We'll Consider...

Fundamentalism is rampant in all of humanity's institutions, not only in religion but in business, medicine, politics, law and education. And it appears to be growing! What makes people resort to this rigid way of thinking? Why is this epidemic of extremism spreading so wildly across the world and causing so much divisiveness? Is fundamentalism a counterfeit short-cut to the real thing? Are people trying to eat the menu instead of the meal?

These are some of the questions that will be included in this evening of dialogic inquiry. Join in this exploration of what is behind this alarming trend that is dividing humanity among all walks of human endeavor.

Conversation Starters:

For Religion: The Very Reverend Alan Jones, Dean of San Francisco's Grace Cathedral (since 1985); past professor at the General Theological Seminary in New York City.

For Business: John Renesch, businessman-turned-futurist, who's authoring a new book on conscious evolution tentatively entitled The New Human: Beyond the Naked Ape.

For Medicine: Len Saputo, MD, co-founder, The Health Medicine Institute, and advocate of "Health Medicine" -- integrative, holistic, person-centered, preventive care; author, radio show host, fitness expert

For Law: Tim Tosta, Esq, partner, Steefel, Levitt & Weiss, a San Francisco law firm; prominent SF Bay Area land-use attorney who's represented numerous development projects across California.
