Ian J. Seda Irizarry asks whether I might be willing to review the arguments concerning the existence of God in the writings of the great philosophers. This is, to put it as gently as I can, not my field of expertise, although it is impossible to devote a lifetime to philosophy without spending a good deal of time reading, thinking about, and teaching what the great philosophers had to say about God, so I do know something, at any rate. But I wonder whether there is anyone else out there who would find such a discussion interesting. As you may have observed, it takes very little encouragement to get me to unleash a torrent of words, so I am not looking for throngs of avid readers -- or, as Emily Dickinson put it in one of my favorite poems from her pen, "an admiring bog" -- but it would be de trop to lay a carefully chosen five thousand words or so on the world for only one reader. So let me know.
Meanwhile, I am proceeding with the project of working up a multi-volume collection of my published and unpublished papers. This will take some time, since I think I must get permission from every journal where they appeared, but one of these days I will offer The Collected Papers of Robert Paul Wolff on Amazon as a series of e-books. If anyone who has read my tutorial on The Thought of Sigmund Freud imagines that this entire undertaking has a certain similarity to the fascination that little babies exhibit with their own feces, he or she would be correct.
