ENJOY THESE PAGES, BUT REMEMBER = They are but parts of the full pedagogical experience, rooted in the classroom (Lectures & discussion) and library, and focused in your own consciousness & spirit. This site therefore is not only very "cool" but also quite "hot" [terms used here in the tradition of the forgotten cultural guru Marshall McLuhan].

I work to keep these pages current, but every week a certain number of off-site links experience "web death". Please be patient. Just keep on surfing.
A word of warning = The glitter and titillation of the internet cannot change the fact that the world-wide web is not under the direction and restraint of editors and editorial boards, as are just about all the materials found in traditional academic libraries. Yes, junk can be found between the covers of books and on the pages of scholarly journals, all neatly accessed and cataloged in our libraries. That's all too human. However, traditions of world-wide scholarly publication and library maintenance work strenuously to reduce sham and error to a minimum. In contrast, the mainstream culture that dominates electronic media seems to thrive on sham and error. Commercial culture tends to worship (rather than expose) what Francis Bacon called "Idols". Just remember, here and elsewhere, be critical, compare multiple sources, be wary.
