On thinking

By Eileen De Guire / November 17, 2011

Rodin’s bronze and marble sculpture, The Thinker. How does he do it? Credit: Wikipedia. Most of us think for a living. Our outputs—experiments, talks, papers, etc.—are evidence of our having thought productively. Do you ever wonder how thinking works? If you are curious, you might want to schedule a trip to the Simons Center for…
