I am a flailing sophist who takes great pleasure in ideas, in philosophy, in words and images and booze and delirious states and images and films and more. I once taught at UC Berkeley and the SF Art Institute and I wrote that book. My desire is to imbue life with ideas and ideas with life as the two, for me, are not opposed. In fact, I find that few things are opposed unless you oppose them. Thanks for reading.

About this project
Can a philosopher make his living as a philosopher, independent of academia? Does this new publishing platform promise a certain democracy of knowledge? Does it make possible the independence, and liveliness, of thought? You tell me.
These "lectures" are thoughts in process. The first few are from a class I taught at UC Berkeley. The rest are delivered into a mic, alone in my room, to an imagined ideal audience.
What interests me throughout is the event of thinking, the turns and folds in thought that make this life interesting.
