HNR Hum, Interdisciplinary, Public Presentation
Class #: 12334 Section: M006 # Credits: 3
In 1998, Sylvia Nasar published her best-selling, award-winning biography of Nobel Laureate John Nash. The title was A Beautiful Mind – also the title of the major film based on Nash’s story. But Nash suffered from serious mental illness, and spent much time as a psychiatric patient. Did his story have the right title? Is Nash’s mind what you would consider a beautiful mind? This interdisciplinary seminar will pursue the question: what is a beautiful mind? Readings will come from literature, architectural history, mathematics, and more. Each student will select a prominent thinker and develop an assessment of that thinker’s mind, making a presentation to the class of the work in progress, and then making a final presentation when the work is fully developed.
