Essay of the Day, 6/18/12: "The Audition of History and the Vocation of Man"
“The Audition of History and the Vocation of Man: Reflections on Extinction and Destiny.” Michigan Quarterly Review 24 (1985): 345-67.
I wrote this after seeing a CFP for a special issue of Michigan Quarterly on "Science and the Human Image." It's an astonishingly wide ranging essay (if I don't say so myself) and probably the best example of my interest in "philosophical anthropology."
It would end up in a somewhat different form in Late for the Sky.
