Another Cool Opportunity


Here is another event you can go to and then blog about this week or in the future.

This would be esepcially interesting for anyone interested in creativity, innovation, and how science and human behavior are related.

Please attend the presentation tomorrow night by Jonah Lehrer, best-selling author of Proust Was a Neuroscientist and How We Decide and a regular contributor to Wired, The New Yorker and other publications.

His work connects randomness, decision-making, science and art. A former Rhodes Scholar, Jonah makes complex scientific topics highly accessible and will appeal to students from diverse disciplines. His topic tomorrow night is “Imagine: The Science of Creativity,” and continues the Bucknell Forum series “Creativity: Beyond the Box.” After his presentation, he will take questions and sign books. His talk is October 4 at 7:30 p.m. in Trout Auditorium.
