I like a lot of harpsichord music myself, but I don't see why a
philosophical society would be so interested in protopianos. (Honestly,
that *is* how I first read it.)

First time I’d encountered it—a message that went out to me and (I assume)
everyone else at Yale (and elsewhere?) with a philosophy affiliation:

==================
I hope all is well! On May 20th and 21st at New York University (NYU) the
Reducetarian Foundation is hosting the Reducetarian Summit, a conference
that will explore how to reduce societal meat consumption with the aim of
creating a more healthy, compassionate and sustainable food system.

Do you know one or two students in your program who might be interested in
attending for free as part of our scholarship fund? If so, will you please
pass this information along? If the student is interested in attending, he
or she can contact me directly for registration details.
==================

For more on reducetarianism, the summit, and the coinage of the term (I’d
have gone with “reducitarian” myself, but nobody asked me), see

[where you’ll also be enlightened about protopianism]
