What a lucky man.

I am currently in New Zealand, been going to the local library daily to work on my assignment. On leaving I have struck up a conversation with a gentleman at the bus stop every day,
He asked what degree I was doing and when I said philosophy he told me a story about when he was doing an engineering degree at The University of Canterbury, Christchurch, NZ.
He had heard about an amazing speaker from the philosophy department and he ended up attending six lectures. Told me that after listening to the lectures he and his friends changed the way they thought about many things.

Told me the lecturer's name was Karl Popper and asked if I had heard of him!!!!!
Didn't know Popper had fled to New Zealand at the outbreak of WW11. Regards, Sandra
