Thank you for not think­ing

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

Has your navel got­ten fuzzy from all that gaz­ing? You’re not alone — ac­cord­ing to sci­en­tists, hu­man be­ings spend more time think­ing to­day than they ever did in the past, which, ac­cord­ing to some thinkers, doesn’t ex­ist (nei­ther does the fu­ture, but we’ll talk about that later). Whew ... it gets ex­haust­ing, all this think­ing, so why not take a break and let some­one else do it? St. John’s Col­lege has in­vited noted thinker Robert Richardson to speak on the topic of “Think­ing on Think­ing.” (Richardson is well qual­i­fied to speak on this topic, as he served as one of the school’s pro­fes­sors — or “tu­tors,” in the lingo of this sin­gu­lar in­sti­tu­tion of higher read­ing.) The synaps­e­siz­zling action gets un­der­way at 3:15 p.m. on Wed­nes­day, April 14, in the Ju­nior Com­mon Room in the Peter­son Stu­dent Cen­ter at St. John’s (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca, 984-6000). The event is free and open to the pub­lic. For more in­for­ma­tion, call 984-6070.
