Congratulations to Will Holloway and Carson Bessinger, each of whom presented a paper at the UVU undergrad philosophy conference yesterday, and each of whom performed fabulously. It was a marathon of a conference, with two papers presented each hour from 8 to 4 with only one break, which was when I had a guest appearance in a Nietzsche class. The papers were uniformly impressive, and the discussions were provocative and intelligent. Everyone patiently endured my keynote address, and then there was a fancy dinner afterward with about 10 of us, including Will. With driving, a 14-hour day for me — exhausting, but in a good way.
