My big effort in the fall semester was of course the series of recorded lectures on Kant's First Critique, which, with the assistance of Alex Campbell, were posted on YouTube. From time to time I check to see how they are doing. The fact that the first lecture has been viewed 25,563 times is, I think, simply an indication that people will try anything once, but I am really pleased that the ninth and last lecture has been viewed 1453 times. That is way more than the total number of students who took my course on The Critique the fourteen times I taught it during my long career. If we assume, without any evidence whatsoever, that viewers of the last lecture also viewed the previous eight [I know, I know, there is no good reason to suppose that] then I think I can reasonably conclude that the series was a success.
I would like to do a series on the thought of Karl Marx, but I am afraid the UNC Philosophy Department would not welcome my hogging their seminar room a second time. Maybe something else will come along.
Meanwhile, the evidence continues to accumulate that the election of Trump has energized and mobilized the center, center left, and even the progressive left in America. Considering that he has not yet been inaugurated, that is very good news.
