Daily Thoughts 02/09/2012

Portrait in oil of the dutch philosopher Baruch Spinoza by the painter Franz Wulfhagen (1624–1670) from Bremen, Germany. Created in 1664, probably commissioned by the scholar Johann Eberhard Schweling, the painting today is in private hands in France.

Daily Thoughts 02/09/2012

We have the Computer Lab for Academic Use from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 pm. I have been helping a few people with their email today.

There is a collage exhibit being put up today called Piecing It Together, at the Mount Vernon Public Library.  I can hear them putting up the exhibit right.

I put some books on collage, assemblage, and mosaic in the displays cases next to the art exhibit.  We have quite a few oversize or quart art books.

On the way home, I read some more of Thinking, Fast and Slow.  Daniel Kahneman is writing about risk.  He is describing why we fail to make bets based on probability and are likely to make huge disastrous bets when we are in trouble.
