Bright Thinking* :

*Warning: thinking is dangerous

Bright Thinking* is a monthly discussion in the style of the French Café philosophique (“cafe-philo”) started by Marc Sautet in Paris.

The topic this month is “Music: Why do humans sing?”

“He who sings frightens away his ills.”
– Miguel de Cervantes

“Music is not an attempt to bring order out of chaos nor to suggest improvements in creation, but simply a way of waking up to the very life we’re living.” 
– John Cage

Speakers: Madelena Andersen-Ward and Maria Lurighi.
