Tomorrow well before the crack of dawn, I shall head to Marist College in Poughkeepsie to give two talks. The second one, "What Good is a Liberal Education?," has some rather unusual ideas in it, drawing on Marx, Freud, and Marcuse. Indeed, it is in its way a good example of the Frankfort School project of achieving a union of the insights of Marx and Freud. When I get home, I shall post on this blog the part of the talk that deals directly with those ideas. I will be very interested to see both what sort of response it gets at Marist and what reaction it provokes on this blog.
Meanwhile, I wait forlornly for the Congressional Democrats to do SOMETHING about health care reform.

Hopefully the planes will fly in the wintry weather (in contrast to the public schools being open and the newspapers delivered) and the audience in Poughkeepsie will merit your attention....... :-)
This was a potentially transformative experience at Marist (fireworks and all). Thank you Prof. Wolff.... We hope that you are home safely!
