As others have privately commented about my web site, I think I am not remiss in tooting my own horn.
12 August 2009 was the 10th anniversary of my web site, The Autodidact Project
, which is still going strong.
In addition to my own rants, essays, translations, poems, book and film reviews, I've provided bibliographies, web guides, and writings by and about others, and so have contributed and have been consulted on a broad range of topics. The authors and topics range from the well known to the highly obscure. Among the jumble of topics are workers' self-education, reading publics, radical publishing, popular intellectual life, atheism, Esperanto, philosophical and universal language projects, board games, ideology, Marxism, Black Studies (Richard Wright, CLR James, jazz musicians, the Afro-German connection, black freethought, and more), critical theory, labor radicals (such as Mark Starr and Buffalo's own Emanuel Fried), the American Hegelians, the Young Hegelians, William Blake, Heinrich Heine, philosophical style, historiography of philosophy, paraconsistent logic, irony, humor & cynicism, occultism, mysticism, orientalism, New Age thought & fascism.
Well-wishers are welcome to comment.
