• Know Thyself: The New Science of Self-Awareness
  • Next Discussion


    We are a like-minded group of professionals from various business and management backgrounds, who got together to form a book discussion group. This book group is distinctive, in the sense that we wanted to provide a forum where we could meet with the authors of business and management books to discuss their books with them.

    We felt that it would encourage practising managers to read and appreciate new and innovative ideas in business and management books, and to be able to challenge authors with new and radical ideas drawn from books discussed.


    Membership is by subscription, and we welcome practising managers from all spheres, who enjoy reading and are willing to participate in an open discussion, share their ideas, and network with other managers.  We meet quarterly to discuss a book chosen by members on a current management or business topic they would like to discuss, or an author whose book they would like to read.  Some books are recommended by publishers with whom we work.  


    New members are welcome, but numbers are limited! We want to maintain the intimacy of a small group so that all can participate in the discussions, which are held quarterly. Full members pay an annual subscription, non-members can pay for a single attendance. Please register if you would like to attend the discussions.

  • The CSNet Book Discussion Group will meet on Tuesday 4 October 2022, at 6.00pm to discuss, “Know Thyself: The New Science of Self-Awareness”, by Stephen M. Fleming, who will be joining us to discuss his book.

    Stephen M. Fleming is a cognitive neuroscientist at University College London.  He is a Wellcome/Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellow, Dept. of Experimental Psychology & Principal Investigator, Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging, where he leads the Metacognition Group.

    Stephen’s book, “Know Thyself: The New Science of Self-Awareness”, provides a guide to the building blocks of self-awareness, drawing on the latest research from psychology, computer science, and neuroscience.  The aim of this new science is to help us unravel the mysteries of how self-awareness works, and its application in other areas of our lives.  In addition, it explores the lack of metacognition in computers, and in machine learning for AI devices.    Stephen will lead our discussion and take questions about his book

     You are invited to join in this discussion and share your ideas at our next event on Tuesday 4 October 2022, 6.00 – 7.30 pm.
