What I've been reading
The Summer 2003 issue of Daedalus highlights the topic of religion and secularism. One of the better articles available online is Nikki Keddie, "Secularism and its discontents."
I picked up a copy of Kirk and Raven, The Presocratic Philosophers the other day, and am looking forward to "doing it" at some point.
Before I get to do this, however, I must finish Abu Nasr Al-Farabi writing on the perfect city.
