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.

Back to basics. 

As I wove my way through a heretofore-unbeknownst-to-me little path, I found myself back in the Bavarian social world(s) of street signs and traffic markers (instead of shocking portrayals of Jesus on the cross in the middle of the woods—coming soon). 

And now, I see "Im Grund." My initial reaction (from English that I have only slowly learned not to "translate" into German)...was horror. Why would anyone reside..."Im Grund?" 

Well...genau. Of course. Im Grund is the point of it all. Ask everyone from John Wooden (look him up) to, well, the lunar Lunar World. "Im Grund" (the Internet has fabulous search tools, so knock yourself out) is perfect. Immanuel Kant meets Aristotle...meets...all sorts of practical people (and I mean "practical" in the widest sense...far beyond Kant's First Critique).

And then I cycled away, thinking only of the circuitous meanderings of the Kritik der reinen Vernunft.

Im Grund.
