“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Distinguished Professor Harman

Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy in my opinion. The American University in Cairo has recognized Graham as Distinguished University Professor. There can be only one! Congratulations sir.

If you don't know of him yet, I really do think that Harman is the most important philosopher to have emerged in the last decade. For me he shows a way to proceed into a truly post-modern (rather than postmodern) era of thought, an era I take to be ecological.
