 "Money and the Meaning of Life"
Friday, May 27th from 7:00 to 9:00 PM 
This Dialogue will feature Professor Jacob Needleman's book "Money and the Meaning of Life" and your own views on the topic which will be asked for at the start.
"Money exerts a deep emotional influence on who we are and what we tell ourselves we can never have. Our long unwillingness to understand the emotional and spiritual effects of money on us is at the heart of why we have come to know the price of everything, and the value of nothing. Money has everything to do with the pursuit of an idealistic life, while at the same time, it is at the root of our daily frustrations. On a social level, money has a profound impact on the price of progress. Needleman shows how money slowly began to haunt us, from the invention of coins in Biblical times (when money was created to rescue the community good, not for self gain), through its hypnotic appeal in our money-obsessed era."
