I have a doctorate in English. I have studied German philosophy, Buddhist philosophy, and the semiotics of Charles Sanders Pierce. I wrote a couple of books but they acquired very few readers, so I am here blogging to clear my own mind on a few issues that have come up in my recent readings on atheisim, science, and the continuing decline of American imperial culture.
I live in a shack with a Llaso Apso named Dog. I don’t vote, but I do bitch. I enjoy old mysteries and old movies, and I listen to music, because, why not.
This blog, then, is an exploration of my personal interests – but not in the sense that it’s about my family or friends or irritating neighbors. It’s about intellectual interests and cultural problematics, their histories and possible futures. But it may also be about my Dog on occasion, because, why not.
