Svend Brinkmann - THINK
Monday 22 May 2023 7 PM.
We need to think better, not less. This is the starting point for Svend Brinkmann's enlightening and entertaining lecture at MCH Herning Kongrescenter on 22 May 2023. Here the popular psychology professor, author and radio host brings his brand new lecture, 'Think', which offers entertaining observations and sharp considerations in defense of the thoughtful lives in a thoughtless time. The lecture is based on Svend Brinkmann's latest book 'Think', which invites the reader to live a more thoughtful life.
HOW CAN WE THINK BETTER?
As humans, we are capable of both deep and critical thinking, but it can be difficult to find the time and space to do so. Because in the modern acceleration society we live in, we must constantly produce, consume and optimise. And when we are not busy with it, we are bombarded with impressions from the media, advertising and social media. We are always 'on', so when can we actually think? Many are currently looking towards the Eastern tradition of meditation and mindfulness, where it is about being present and thinking less. Svend Brinkmann turns it all upside down and instead unfolds the possibilities for thinking better based on the tradition of Western philosophy. Because thinking better is essential for a good life, he believes.
