Announcing: A Dissertation Introduction

Dear Readers,

As you may know, I’m in the Philosophy Ph.D program at the University of Miami. Over the past year I’ve been developing the contours of my dissertation, and have written a non-technical, impressionistic introduction to it. It doesn’t contain a mountain of technical references or jargon, and is going to be developed much further and with more rigor, when I reach those stages of the project. Think of it as an extended “Provocations” piece for now. To that end, it is broad in scope and sometimes impassioned in tone.

Despite it being in embryonic form, I wanted to share the introduction with The Electric Agora crowd, now. My hope is that you will enjoy it as much as I am excited about it, and I look forward to discussing it with you!
