NR 7 2010THEME: Aesthetic re-evolution

Beauty is a feeling deep in the evolved mind of the beholder. It is a gift handed down from the intelligent skills and rich emotional lives of our most ancient ancestors.

Why We Love Fiction

Stories play a large part in our lives, not only as a pastime. More important is that fiction has helped humanity survive. Even though science can explain the need of fiction, it cannot replace it.


Do we all want freedom?

Somerset Maugham once remarked that he found it strange that Henry James was prepared to exchange one of the most important subjects of his day, the rise to world power of his own country, the United States, for the tittle-tattle of the drawing-rooms Europe. But perhaps this is not altogether strange: we are often so wrapped up in our own little lives that we fail to miss the most important political or economic trends around us.
