Analects of the Core: Shakespeare on looking past philosophy

There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 5, Line 166-167

Tom Farndon (Core ’10, CAS ’12) suggested today’s Analect. He writes: “Even though the great works of philosophy spur us on to ask questions about our lives and the lives around us, we must still never forget to look past that every once in a while and enjoy the things outside of academia and philosophy.”

On the topic of the Scottish play, there’s a new production out starring Patrick Stewart.
