Bertrand Russel's 10 commandments of teaching:
- Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.
- Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.
- Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.
- When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.
- Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.
- Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.
- Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.
- Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.
- Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.
- Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool’s
paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.
Until May 2014, I lectured at
University in the Division of Applied
Mathematics, Vision and
Learning Group. I majored in Electronics Engineering with
Computer Science, and completed my MSc
as a member of the Digital Signal
Processing Group. In December 2010, the arduous journey of
transforming myself into a doctor of engineering came to an end,
producing as a side effect a dissertation
on super-resolution imaging. Our
university is located in the beautiful village
and, students being
students, our campus probably
has a lot in common with
yearly SANUM conference may
provide a good excuse to visit us!
