OFF TO THE BIG APPLE
Tomorrow morning, before the sun is up, I shall set out for New York City to lecture at Columbia. I have been told that the lecture will be video'd and posted on YouTube, in which case you will be able to see it. The title, as I have reported, is "What Good is a Liberal Education? A Radical Replies." This will be my first gig at Columbia as a member of their Society of Senior Scholars. What will come of this? We shall see. I return home Saturday noon, after which I shall report on how it all went down. My lecture will offer a new and unexpected answer to the title question, with roots in the work of Marx, Freud, and Marcuse. Should be fun.
