Bob Dylan talks about the powerful impression books he read at school made upon him. He’s an example of scholarship working its way into a life of creativity and imagination. Here at the Royal Greenwich Trust School we hope that our students will also find their school experiences inspire them to live creative and imaginative lives in their own unique individual way. Dylan is a genius, but what comes across here is not being smart but being passionate about what he’s encountered and what he’s pursuing.
The philosopher scholar Hubert Dreyfus died a couple of weeks ago. He spent his whole life studying and writing about his intellectual discoveries. He was an expert on the philosophy of consciousness and direct experience, Phenomenology. In the following videos he discusses the subjects of his work back in the 1970s. He is an example of how a good scholar is a scholar for life and that scholarship is, in a sense, a way of life.
