Thesaurus Linguae Graecae
Founded in 1972 the TLG represents the first effort in the Humanities to produce a large digital corpus of literary texts.

Gut Feelings: short cuts to better decision making
We think of intelligence as a deliberate, conscious activity guided by the laws of logic. Yet much of our mental life is unconscious, based on processes alien to logic: gut feelings, or intuitions. In his lecture Dr Gigerenzer argues that intuition is more than impulse and caprice; it has its own rationale. This can be described by fast and frugal heuristics, which exploit evolved abilities in our brain. Heuristics ignore information and try to focus on the few important reasons. He shows that b
