Meditation can help you attain mental clarity and manage the stresses of college life! Anthony Kubiak is a professor of Drama, specializing in modern theater and performance. He has published books on the role of theater in American society, and theater's associations with terrorism. “I am interested in strangeness. Not weirdness, or edginess, or in-your-faceness, exactly, but rather the deeply disturbing human riddles that won’t go away. That haunt us. Why are we so violent, and yet so capable of love, and enraptured by beauty? Why do we feel so estranged from the natural world, and yet are so drawn by it? Are we one self or a multitude? If one, why is that self so hard to pin down, so mysterious and unknowable? If many, what accounts for the sense of an enduring, single identity? What is the role (role, interesting word) of theater in all of this? Is theatre about some enduring truth of life, or is the only truth of theatre that we live only in illusion? Is that theatre’s truth? Is truth illusion, illusion truth? Or is it, as Keats said, that 'Beauty is truth, truth beauty’?”
