  1. Hi, stumbled across your review of Nudge on Amazon, which lead me to this page. Read your “Commitments” section. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂

    Alan,
    After our group work on the UIC Global Campus course, I returned to the bios. I especially liked the quote of Eddington on knowing ‘one and one.’ It reminds me of the Gestalt principal that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Your apreciation of Robbins point of pushing things to the realm of magic is very impressive to me also. I have taken up magic as a hobby. What has proven so facinating is not that I can do magic that blurs the boundaries of credability, but how people react to it. How it reminds them to appreciate the mystery, or sometimes how frustrated they become as they discover that there is knowledge outside of their ken..
    I know this may sound ridiculous but there is an older Alan Schwartz (originally from NY) who is a lawyer in the Southern California area who is a family relative. Are you any relation to him?
    Stan

    Heya, Stan. No relation, I’m afraid.
