Our upcoming events:
Please see below a synopsis of the Friends supper talk on Thursday 17 March on the topic: ‘Two great persons that have influenced our world: exploring the remarkable similarities between Jan Smuts and Charles Darwin’ which will be presented by Beate Holscher.
Amongst the great people that have influenced the course of history, and how we view the world in general, Charles Darwin and Gen Jan Smuts stand out. Although they lived in different times, and had an impact in different fields, there are many similarities in their lives, their world views and their general habits. From choosing to live away from the bustle of the cities, taking a daily walk to clear the mind, their formidable wives, their passion for collecting and their lasting legacies, there is a thread that connects these men in surprising ways. Join us as we explore the lives of these two giants, and get an understanding of how these similar personalities contributed to their greatness.
The cost is R130 for members and R150 for visitors.
