After moving away from Valparaiso at the beginning of 2017, I dropped my membership and participation in the Saturday Evening Club, which is a 100+-year-old men’s only organization composed of mostly retired CEOs, professors and other professionals in the community. Each month, one member is the designated host and presents a paper on the topic of his interest, his co-host provides the dinner and the guests each take turns responding to the paper. At the end, the author has one opportunity to respond to all the comments before the evening concludes. Given my interest in interdisciplinary studies and vigorous reading in Complex Systems Science (CSS), I used this opportunity to share where my five years of research has led me and hopefully inspired them to do more investigating themselves when it comes to how we approach problems confronting the human race.
