Teaching, On Kant
This morning in "What Is Compelling?" at Berkeley, I'll be talking audiences and intentions, Crusius and Channell's Aims of Argument, the three Aristotelian appeals, then discussing Kant's "Idea of a Universal History for a Cosmopolitan Purpose." This class will end the first week of summer intensives; five still to go and it feels like I'm operating on fumes already. Worrisome. My students, though, seem appealingly bright and eager, and that is always a spur to best efforts.
