This month was the second time the same circles met up and discussed various topics, being the fallible way by which science generates knowledge, diminishing cultural differences due to globalization, and the dangers of ‘news-creating journalism’. Whereas the Monday circles were forced to seek out the comfort of Pascal and Niek’s homes due to suboptimal weather circumstances, the Tuesday circle was more lucky and had a lovely evening in the park. As always, the different circles met up in a bar (‘t Gras van de Buren) to mingle and share the highlights of the discussions that were held. Many drinks and laughs later, everyone called it a night and went home deeply satisfied with yet another great evening of good discussion and good company.
