How Thoughts are Born

November 6, 2014, 19:30 lecture

On November 6th, the Digital October Center will play host to a lecture entitled «How Thoughts are Born» as part of its «Popular Lectorium» project.

What do our thoughts mean? Where do they come from and where do they go? Why do some people seem to have lots of thoughts while other people have few? Are thoughts expressed in words right away, or do they exist in some other way to begin with? What kinds of thinking strategies are there, and which one is the most effective? Can all people be taught to think logically and, if so, how? Is it possible to read someone’s thoughts? How is the artistic process organized, and is it necessary to stimulate your psyche in that direction?

Sergey Mats, a senior professor at the Vygotsky Institute of the Russian State University for the Humanities, will share his views on this and other subjects.

This is a paid event: admission costs 350 rubles.
