Join us for our first Topping & Company non-fiction reading group.

For our first book we will be starting with Peter Godfrey-Smith’s fantastic philosophical musings on cephalopods. Peter Godfrey-Smith is a Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the City University of New York Graduate Centre and Professor of History and Philosophy of Science at the University of Sydney.

Peter Godfrey-Smith’s Other Minds is an extremely humbling investigation into marine intelligence. Through studying the development of Molluscs, the social lives of Cephalepods and by taking a retrospective look at our own development;  it forces the reader to reflect upon their place in the universe provoking readers to re-asses the way they think about and interact with other species.

There will be wine, a plethora of nibbles and great conversation. We hope to see you there!
