LETTERS
Consubstantiality at Chicago


It was a rare treat for me to read the article by David Forbes, "My life as a mind-and body" in the April/02 issue, in part because his lucid account of life at the U of C between 1967 and 1971 so much resembled my own experiences. Those days at the U of C were certainly some of the most important ones of my life. The atmosphere was optimal for me as a graduate student in the psychology department; everyone was "doing their own thing" in such a strange way that the campus had an indescribable unity-a consubstantiality of purpose-involved in providing an environment for original thinking. I am grateful to the author for sharing his past with me.
