2009 Terry Lectureship at Yale: Marilynne Robinson

Here is a link to the 2009 Dwight H. Terry Lectureship at Yale this year given by Marilynne Robinson. Ms. Robinson's theme is "Absence of Mind: The Dispelling of Inwardness from the Modern Myth of the Self." The lectures, titled "On Human Nature," "The Strange History of Altruism," "The Freudian Self," and "Thinking Again," explore the significance of reflection and the power of unvoiced thoughts in defining the self.
