Understanding the thought process is subject of first spring 2013 faculty lecture


The Adams State University Faculty Lecture Series begins the spring semester with " How Our Thoughts Form and Turn into Arguments: Why is Everybody Stupid but Me?," by Dr. Michael Tomlin, professor of business. The event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb.13, in Porter Hall room 130.

Every thought we form starts its journey clean and bias free yet seldom ends there. It must fight for survival in a mind of competing filters – beliefs, experiences, knowledge and more. Good critical thinking helps us dissect, sift and sort and ensure we form the "right" thoughts; and at the same time better understand the thinking of others.

All talks are free and the public is invited. Complimentary light refreshments will be offered. For further information on the series of lectures, contact Dr. Kristy Duran, assistant professor of biology, at 719-587-7767, or klduran@adams.edu.
