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.
One thought on “UVU Conference”
Yes, a fantastic showing by all involved. I must concede the polite praise in more authenticity to Carson, who was monumentally brilliant in his showing, prose, and depth of contemplation. The topics throughout the conference were very thought provoking and well represented. Huenemann’s interaction with the Nietzsche class was a lot of fun and the class itself was very engaging, full of bright and questioning young people. The talk at the end was fabulous, with a backdrop of Glory in its view. As Huenemann talked the sun descended into the windows, causing some to adjust themselves or cover their eyes. The Light is always troubling to those finding it for the first time, it was amazingly proper. The dinner was amazing and the table full of wit and energetic humor. I am humbled that I was selected among so many great minds, I am surely unworthy, it was an honor and a privilege just to attend.
By the way, I think we need to escort Charlie to a Doctor who is freed from any and all Technological enframing so that he can be diagnosed for his inauthenticity, therefore helping him to better his encounters and obligations to the other, the Other, the Other Other, the Absolute Other, after which he will properly understand that my dog has no Ears, even though it itself is still partaking in Dwelling.
