Genesis of Reasoning itselfPosted: October 24, 2002
Today I had a good class. “Foundations of Computer Theory” is taken by Radzizowski. The theory here really pushes one to think. Problems that computers find unsolvable while creative thinking applies are interesting and challenging. Suddenly we begin to map the limits of reasoning in the 8 th week of classes and as Phaedrus in “Zen and the art of Motorcycle Mainteanance” described the air is starting to get a little thin here. I feel like I am in Third year again, exploring reasoning and the process itself, coming up with small discoveries and serendipity. Only this time I have a faculty and other students who share what I can see. Tougher challenges lie ahead. 10 weeks of classes is just too short.
