For me, one of the biggest benefits of hand writing are that it is much more difficult to try to make every sentence perfect when you can't erase, so it allows me to keep going to get the basic story out and down on p... Read more of this blog post »

Tomorrow I’ll be teaching Plato’s Gorgias, and today I’ve been reviewing it. It strikes me, as it always does when I read this dialogue, that this is Socrates at his worst, and I find myself asking, as I always ask when I read this dialogue, whether Plato knew that.
Socrates’s chief opponent here,...Read more of this blog post »

Graham Greene’s “The Ministry Of Fear” is a gripping and brilliantly written novel. In short, it is one of the very best books I have read about London and the German Blitz of that city during World War 2. It is a thriller, a mystery, a psychological and sociological study of the effects of bomba...Read more of this blog post »

I mentioned elsewhere that, after years of avoiding it, I decided I should teach a course about racism. I was hesitant because I think there are too damn many white people telling non-white people about their experiences. I decided to teach it when I realized my goal wasn’t telling non-white peo...Read more of this blog post »

Demeter brought bountiful harvest and famine.
Apollo was a healing god, but also a bringer of plague.
And Zeus, while we know him more now for his unchecked sex...Read more of this blog post »
