The Chronicle Review Big Brains, Small Minds

Big Brains, Small Minds

 

is about seeing STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) studies in a Platonic light. 

We risk becoming a society of technological prowess and philosophical illiteracy.
We are on the verge of becoming the best trained, and least educated, society
since the Romans. And reducing the humanities to a type of soft science
will only hasten this trend. As the sciences rightly grow, a free society
must ensure that criticism of the sciences grows apace.


for Axel ;) and other readers who are interessted in the whole article:

baum / tree

Tina arbeitet an einer neuen Postkarte. Diesmal werden lauter Bäume zu sehen sein - Bäume im Winter genauer gesagt. Die kleinen feinen Äste und Zweige zu zeichnen dauert lange und beschert unserer Künstlerin den ein oder anderen Krampf in ihren Fingern.

Walrus & the Bear


Tina did this illustration for Walrus & the Bear, an art historian turned podcast-producer. 
Walrus will bring you compelling stories from Berlin, alternated with reflections on its controversial history. Because it is only after you understand Berlin’s central role in so many historic conflicts, that you can fully appreciate the unique situation Berlin is in today.

Chemistry World magazine

Tina Zellmer worked together with the Royal Society of Chemistry
for the Chemistry World magazine

The article is about how scientists can extract proteins and DNA samples from the bones
of prehistoric animals, but there is a question over how long proteins can really
survive and therefore how accurate the results of this research are.

stay critical



Recently I was creating an illustration in support of Charlie Hebdo, a French satirical magazine, which has been the target terrorist attacks, in 2011 and in 2015, presumed to be in response to a number of controversial Muhammad cartoons it published. In the second of these attacks, 12 people were killed, including four cartoonists.

STAY CRITICAL
We should defend free speech but doing so while listening to the voice of the voiceless living in our midst. Charlie Hebdo and the press have the right - and should - publish what they think is right, but everyone is free to be offended by what is published and it is their right, to be critical, too.
Condemn the violence, but stay critical of the labels that are used to characterize some terrorist attacks but not others.

Richard Linden and Linda Elder, 2008
The well-cultivated critical thinker:

  • raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;
  • gathers and assesses relevant information;
  • carefully interprets information to form well-reasoned conclusions;
  • tests conclusions, evaluating against relevant criteria;
  • thinks open-mindedly, avoiding the influence of untested or irrational concepts and beliefs; and
  • communicates effectively with others, particularly in the development and testing of conclusions or solutions.
