BACK IN HARNESS

My passage at arms with death rather distracted me, with the consequence that it has been some while since I have undertaken anything more than the occasional commentary on the passing scene.  I think it is time to essay something more, so today or tomorrow, I shall begin a mini-tutorial on Plato's Gorgias.  This is, of course, a well-known work, which many of you undoubtedly have read, and which quite possibly some of you have even published on.  I am not an expert on Greek philosophy [I do not read Greek, among other things], but I have taught the Gorgias many times, as it is one of my favorite philosophical works.  I hope that some of you will enjoy the mini-tutorial.

Meanwhile, I shall continue to react to the raree show that passes for politics in America today.
