This week involves lots of paper grading, writing, and Boethius. Much as Boethius is a challenge, reading him is also a real relief after the papal letter (singular - we didn't even finish one) of the past few weeks. The next few weeks feel very short already since I'm busy making plans for the last three weekends of this month, all of which will involve being social and either travelling or someone else travelling.

Not that I needed more to do, but I finally found out who to contact to volunteer for the RSA meeting, so I should be on the list now. Hurray! I wanted to dabble in the conference, but it certainly wasn't worth the cost of attending. This way I can not only attend and dabble, but also be useful and constructive. (RSA = Renaissance Society of America)

Back to cocoa and a little pre-sleep dissertation work...

I came across a great bit of Boethius recently, while researching Aquinas on Software: "Reasoning is to understanding as time is to eternity, or a circle to its centre." From the Consolation, which I've read (Englished) but don't recall that line from. Very proto-intuitionist.

On a similarly Scholastic note, I notice that today, at 6pm in the East Common Room at Hart House, an Egyptian film called Destiny about ibn Rushd (Averroes) is showing. Alas, I'm not sure I can make it, but people reading this might be interested.
