Mark Schmanko

My point is that whatever is real and compelling about god-talk, it's approached far more adequately with plural language, plural deities, plural visions, even plural realities, all of which can expand our spiritual imagination to better understand and engage religion and spirituality in its wild, deep and powerful diversity today.

When I read about the failed Pfizer deal to merge with Allergen and move the headquarters to Ireland, allowing them to evade paying US taxes, I think that I may be discussing a possible future for the US market. Large corporations are not interested in the common good of human beings.

Dani Rodrik | Posted 03.18.2015 | World
Dani Rodrik

Today's technological revolutions calls for a comprehensive reinvention. The potential benefits of discoveries and new applications in robotics, biotechnology, digital technologies and other areas are all around us and easy to see. Indeed, many believe that the world economy may be on the cusp of another explosion in new technologies.

Daniel Tutt

What does critical theory tell us about the future of social struggles? Remzig Keucheyan's The Left Hemisphere: Mapping Critical Theory Today is wise to point to the central role that ecology and the ever-growing ecological crisis will play as a site of social antagonism and political conflict.

The Recurring Myth About Nietzsche and Fascism

Brian Leiter | Posted 08.06.2014 | College
Brian Leiter

Freedom of inquiry and thought must surely encompass the right of students to discuss and think about ideas, including illiberal ideas. The idea that a "Nietzsche Club," in particular, is not appropriate for a serious university (one with several Nietzsche scholars on its faculty, ironically enough) is astonishing.

Richard Brodsky

When Marx started to talk about public ownership of the means of production, he never guessed he was predicting how the Yankees would maneuver themselves a free stadium. And he never expected his most successful disciples to be two billionaires, George Steinbrenner and Mike Bloomberg.

The (Unselfish) Desire To Work Less

Matt Bieber | Posted 02.05.2014 | Healthy Living
Matt Bieber

In some ways, my decade of professional nomadism has been about trying to find a job that will admit the highest percentage of me through the door. Teaching is about as close as I've come, and that's still only 40 or 50 percent. There's very little time for anything else, and if I had a girlfriend, there'd probably be none at all.
