Philosophy course on Thinking


We are planning to organize a workshop based course on Philosophy of thinking. It would focus on philosophical dimentions of creative and critical thinking. The first meeting cum class is organised on 24 Nov at Christ College. The suceeding classes are proposed to be held either at Indian Institute of Science or at some other conveniet place. It will also be decided whether the course will be part of college certificate programmes or not. The current feeling among the students is not to bring it under the certificate programmes. However we can sort out these on 24 Nov at 2.00 pm in Room 109, Main block, of christ college.

Reg the fee, we will discuss on 24. All those are interested or those who wish to attend the first session and then wish to make up their mind are welcome.

The course will be taught by Prof Sundar Sarukkai, of National Institute of Advanced Studies(NIAS), IISC. He holds PhD in Philosophy from Purdue University, US and has been visiting prof at MIT,US and Stanford. He is a well-known scholar among all schools of philosophy in India. Above all he is a very good teacher and an approachable person. He taught an introductory course in Philosophy at Christ College last Jan Feb and Mar. It was well received and appreciated. It was amazing.

Please circulate this mail among your classmates, friends from Christ college and other colleges. Others are also welcome but do consult me.I will be happy if you can post it on your respective class orkut/face book communities or blogs for the sake of wider publicity. You may also display the print outs of this mail in your classrooms.

Please do email me if you are planning to attend. However, you may also drop in without emailing me.
