Close But Not Comatose

I am barely moving, but because I’m not sleepy, I’m letting somebody else do the thinking for me. Today, that’s Prof. Cornel West, from whom I postmodern thought decades ago at Yale Divinity School. West gave the Gifford Lectures this year, in Edinburgh. He reminds me that not only did I learn a great deal about postmodernism from him, but I learned a lot about lecturing from him, and style, and the possibility of a being a philosophe bricolant.

Lecture One: Philosophic Prelude
Lecture Two: Metaphilosophic Andante
Lecture Three: Folly Presto
Lecture Four: History Adagio
