Apologies to readers for the dearth of posting recently–I am wrapping up the last two papers I have to write for my MA at the University of Chicago (one on inequality and democracy in the United States, the other on Aristotle and the vulgar craftsman). These papers must be completed by June 4, so by that date or before regular posting will resume. I will be spending next year waiting to hear back about PhD applications, so once these papers are finished my schedule will open up considerably and blog volume will increase. Thank you for your patience in the meantime. I appreciate all of you who take time out of your busy schedules to follow my writing.
