Mind and Body:
From René Descartes to William James

Writing Descartes:
I Am, and I Can Think, Therefore ...

Story Evolution
Sharon Burgmayer

a contribution evolving from Grobstein's Writing Descartes ...
8 July 2004


In response to Burgmayer/Grobstein:

I have a different sense of "being" vs "becoming". I will acknowledge that thinking has a role in the latter; still contend that for me "being" is more an "in the moment kind of thing". I've abandoned attempts to describe this difference in words, but here are a set of images that serve to differentiate "being" and "becoming" for me.


For some further thoughts, see "Are there differences between words and pictures as ways of thinking? Individually? Collectively? As ways of story sharing? Individually? Collectively?"
