Good news for all you Kant lovers! The eighth [and penultimate] Kant lecture is now available on YouTube here. I strongly recommend it as an escape from the election, which is now a mere seven days away. I had the very great pleasure of voting this noon. I can report that if the United States were Chapel Hill writ large, Clinton would win in an historic landslide [except that if the United States were Chapel Hill writ large, it would be Bernie Sanders who would be about to win in a landslide.]
I suppose that I am a sentimentalist, but it gave me great pleasure to vote. For one brief moment, I was actually doing something, and not just complaining about the world.
The final lecture will be next Monday, the day before election day, which is of course madness. How on earth am I going to keep busy now that I am about done with the Kant lectures?
