  1. What an outrageous abuse of government.
  2. The lecture on Aristotle as scientist/biologist goes into Aristotle's approach, how it's been misinterpreted and misrepresented over the centuries by various intellectuals.

  5. Language Use in Western Philosophy

  17. DoD Manual says Founding Fathers were Extremists

    An obsession with the middle is way more extreme than anything at the ends.
  18. In Memoriam: Allan Gotthelf

    He taught me so much through his lectures, books and sense of life. An irreplaceable warrior.
