Plans for the Appearing Fall

Published on by | Comments Off on Plans for the Appearing Fall

I revised my blogposts today, made some corrections and advancements to be prepared for introducing these posts to my new students, colleagues and friends. Why should I introduce my posts? – Because I believe that human beings are born to live in community, communication and sharing. I have heard that the Catholic Priests study the lives […]

The Cat is on the Roof – Is It?

Published on by | 1 Comment

  Setting aside the logical predictability models – What is it that influences our decisionmaking? – Is it our historical and cultural background?
