It’s been a busy few days of writing and course prepping. I finished the first draft of A Primer for Philosophy and Education and would be happy to share a digital copy with those interested in it. (Just send me an e-mail.) Course syllabi are just about finished for my upcoming classes at the University of North Dakota: “Foundations of Educational Thought” and “Historical Foundations of Education.” Finally, I deleted my essay “In Praise of Cigarettes” from this site. It is being considered by another publication at the moment, so, pending the decision, I may or may not re-post it here. Tomorrow we’re back in birthday mode, for Tomas’s 6-year-old birthday.
