“I Think, I Think” – The Grand Tour

Music and Lyrics: Jerry Herman

Professional thinker Rene Descartes, the father of modern philosophy and famous for saying, “I think, therefore I am,” was born on this day in 1596.  In a solemn ballad from this rather upbeat musical about unlikely allies escaping the Nazis, the bullheaded Colonel Stjerbinsky thinks about how similar he actually is to his companion.  It is a moment that would make any philosopher proud as his thinking leads to greater understanding.
