Back in the mid-1980s  I read Dostoevsky’s three great novels, The Possessed, Crime and Punishment, and The Brothers Karamazov, all in a single semester.  I found there some really useful insights for we who wish to formulate cures for societal decay.  Let me know what you think . . .

    Here’s another worthwhile study, in my opinion, given the cultural cataclysm that was the 2016 presidential election: Go over to “Weaver’s Top Ten” and read, all within a few days, essay numbers 10, 7, 6, 3 & 4, in that order. Contemplate Weaver’s vision for the well-ordered culture. Given how fractured is American culture in our day, this seems a timely endeavor. Let me know what you come up with! (Dr. Tallmon, don’t you realize a blog is where you tell us what you think and then we respond? I already did. Read the “abstract” to each of these essays and you’ll see. ;-)

    K. Fields, this post was prompted by our conversation about your idea for your “Final Reflection Paper” for Rhetoric I, FYI . . .
