We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's really a survey, but with plenty of good links to dig deeper. It doesn't read the original sources for you, but it's highly enjoyable and informative, and it will bring back everything you once heard, or should have heard, in college, especially if you went to the great University of Chicago, or Columbia. Trouble is, they do the original sources but don't have the patience to tie it all together. That's why we appreciate real teacher guys like Kreis.
I am doing one lecture per day, but I will have to do it twice because of my ADD and the distraction of our short-skirted young receptionist who is the current cause of my Adult ADD. (Billable hours? Well, you know how hard we barristers work when we aren't drinking, reading the papers, surfing online, jousting on eBay, sighting in our muskets and bows, hunting, dining, emailing, ordering books and movies and toys on Amazon, or looking at gals.)
From Abelard to the certifiably insane Nietzsche, Kreis does an excellent job of putting everything in historical context. I hope his fortunate but doubtless oatmeal-and- Budweiser-brained students appreciate what he does - his enthusiasm and his thoughtfulness. It is a true delight, for which I am grateful.
