The time was the middle of the nineteenth century. Long-standing monarchies all over Europe were crumbling. New ideas about science and society undermined commonly held ideas about the human condition that had persisted for millennia. The great thinkers of that time and the decades that followed groped insistently for some bedrock concept upon which they could base their quest for meaning.
Dr. Zach Simpson explores this search for an alternative to certainty in his first book, Life as Art: Aesthetics and the Creation of Self. Simpson is scheduled to share excerpts and observations from his research beginning at 7:30 p.m. on April 2 in room 124 of Davis Hall.

CHICKASHA – Averaging nearly 16 points a game, senior Norris Rumph’s performance on the court this season earned him NAIA All-America Second Team honors, the NAIA released Wednesday.
“I think it’s a tribute to him. He put the time in to make himself better, and he was the leader of our team,” said Brisco McPherson, head men’s basketball coach. “I’m happy that he was able to accomplish that. He worked at it.”
Rumph is the one of seven athletes from Oklahoma schools to be recognized by the NAIA on any of its All-America teams and honorable mention lists.
CHICKASHA – With equal dedication in the classroom as on the floor, two players on the USAO women’s basketball team earned national accolades as a student-athlete.
Senior Tashina Ototivo and junior Paige Pulliam were named Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes this week.
“We are very proud of them. They work very hard and are certainly deserving of this recognition,” said Jennifer Hayden, head women’s basketball coach. “They set a very good example for students and athletes to follow on the court and in the classroom.”
