DEEP IN THE WEEDS

I am currently learning how to show text selections on the screen during a zoom session to that as I lecture, I can both read and show passages from the Treatise.  I feel like Harry Austryn Wolfson when, in 1952, he tried out in our Spinoza class a hot new pedagogical trick he had heard about from his lunch colleagues in the Harvard Faculty Club -- CLASS DISCUSSION!

That didn't go so well.  I hope this works better.

If I could give my humble suggestions for our next lesson, please take your time and talk for as long and in much detail as you want, we're all here to listen. Also funny skimp on your stories please! Honestly I really like them. Your story about meeting Bertrand Russell! Such a joy.

Take care, thank you

Everyone should mute their microphone during the lecture and only umute for speaking. Otherwise the video seems to jump to the first person who moves or laughs at the anecdotes.
