On women and thinking

Sigmund Freud was an Austrian neurologist and psychoanalyst who created new approaches to the understanding of the human personality. At the same time that Rodin was making his ‘Thinker’, Sigmund Freud had theories about women thinking.

‘Dispositional hypnosis states grow out of the day-dreams to which needlework and similar occupations render women especially prone..., and intrude into waking life in the form of hysterical symptoms’

And lastly, some considered and (less controversial) thoughts on thinking by ancient Chinese philospher Lao Tzu.

Watch your thoughts, 
they become your words;
Watch your words, 
they become your actions;
Watch your actions, 
they become your habits;
Watch your habits, 
they become your character;
Watch your character, 
it becomes your destiny.
