Resonant Thoughts: Barbara Gail Montero’s “Thought In Action” (2016)


“In the arts the best performances allow observers to witness some deliberate, conscious thought in action. Consider the difference between listening to someone lecture on her feet and listening to someone read a paper…The performance bereft of the mind would be, in certain respects, like watching a machine: although the output could be amazing, the most interesting of spectacles—the human mind—is lacking.”

– Barbara Gail Montero, Thought In Action (2016), p. 140
