ADVERTISEMENTS FOR MYSELF

I have just amused myself by watching the ninth lecture on YouTube of my 10 lecture series on Ideological Critique.  It is one of the best lectures I have ever given. I recommend to you.

I have watched all of them and have copy of every lecture in my laptop.i have the hard copy of your best work named "Kant's theory of Mental activity" too.

That lecture series on Kant feels, in some ways, like a well-written novel (as all great lecture series are!). As you state at throughout the videos, you make a bunch of IOU's about Kant's project, promising that it'll tie together and be worthwhile if you just stick with it. Those IOU's parallel the promises made by Joyce when beginning Ulysses, or Pynchon when beginning Gravity's Rainbow, or Dostoyevsky when beginning the good ol' Brother's K. "Just stick to it and I promise with God (or his nonbeing) as my witness that it will be worthwhile." Grapple with it, and you'll get something.

And the answers do come together. And it is quite beautiful. And all our debts our square. Thank you, Prof. Woolf!

Off topic, but I'm on my phone at the moment and Google/Chrome for some reason says it has detected phishing at this site and warns people away from it. One can bypass the warning, but the whole thing strikes me as weird. A blog site is not an esp likely place to find phishing, I wouldn't think, and I've never noticed anything like that in the comment threads here. Maybe an occasional comment that's an ad for something, but they're easy enough to spot.

I just watched Professor Wolff's YouTube video titled: Marx, Robert Paul Wolff Lecture 1. (This is the first time I've seen him speak.)

I was quite impressed by the depth of knowledge he covers of events outside of economics like European history especially of French influence, etc., and even religion, something I wasn't expecting. It's interesting how all the pieces in history tie together.

Not only that, but I should add that I was captivated throughout the whole video, something that speaks well of his teaching style. This is a rare skill.

A bit late to ask but does anyone know where the story (canard) about Quine and the John Birch Society comes from.

Andrew, the "story" comes from Comments on blogs referencing Quine and the Birch Society in the same sentence. There, as always, provides the optimum link.
