From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

I don't know who you are, 
but I will find you...

...and I will tell you in no uncertain terms that the entire Western 
philosophical argument about "free will" is so flawed, from start to 
finish, that it is an embarrassment to every bit of the intellectual tradition. 

The inability to understand the deep social contextualization of everything 
humans do, combined with an utterly binary approach to the "structures" 
that we negotiate on many levels every moment of our lives, makes this 
a howler that should cause (but won't) twenty-five centuries of 
Western philosophers embarrassment for 
not even getting the question right. 

Ever heard of the ol' farmboy who was climbing the ladder of success? 
His dad shouted out to him "Hey, moron—wrong barn." 
And that little story reminds me of this sorry excuse for philosophical argument.  

Now, carry on willfully...
(and if you persist, I will call you):
...ontological carrion.
