From Dec ’10 Spotlight:

Fall festivals are over. Many special guests have come and gone. Now it’s time to replenish our shelves before the winter snows begin.


Back at Harold Washington Library Center, Rebecca Goldstein analyzed the famous philosophical conundrum called “The Mind-Body Problem.”

During the Q&A, Goldstein quoted William James (From Pragmatism: “The history of philosophy is to a great extent that of a certain clash of human temperaments.”), then concluded that, for her, the solution to The Mind-Body Problem rests on “our attitude towards mystery.”

You’ll find lots of mystery in Goldstein’s latest novel 36 Arguments for the Existence of God (a work of fiction).
