Although it’s still August, for most places in North America it’s back to school time, and accordingly I’m resuming my nearly two-year-old attempt to write weekly posts on subjects pertaining to medieval philosophy. As always, I’m grateful for any email suggestions regarding noteworthy material. Next up, however, is something unusual for me — indeed, something that goes against the stated policy of this blog — a rant. It is, moreover, not even a specifically medieval rant, though it is relevant to our community too. So there’s something to look forward to, or perhaps avoid, in a day or so.
