Love the episode on Aristotle!

Outstanding insight.

Everything That Rises Must Converg

Flannery O'Connor is an extraordinary author in that she sees human life as existing within many dimensions, and, in her stories, she reveals how human actions reverberate simultaneously within these many spheres. How something appears to be may be so very different when closely looked into from a different perspective, how behavior in one dimension affects the reality in others. Her work reveals how narrowly focused much of our contemporary writing is as well as how rich it can be. This podcast excellently addresses all of the above aspects. Bravo!.
