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...[1]

...and tell you that no month of French pondering can be complete without a philosophy-meets-history-meets-obscurantism shout-out to my countryman Michel Foucault.

His books are dizzying, strange, terrifying, and yet vaguely satisfying. What I like best, however, are the volumes of lectures. There, he expostulates, mulls, culls, and blends in ways that show a fine (though peculiar) mind at work.

Michel Foucault—he's not just for sustained narrative...anymore.
