Lecturer

In January and February 2018, I presented six lectures on The Matrix of Western Culture for the Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida Southwestern College in Punta Gorda, based on my book of that title.  In March and April 2019 I shall be presenting a lecture series "Expanding the Matrix," taking individual works from the original matrix and expanding them horizontally (across disciplines) and vertically (across time).  Click here for my curriculum vitae, containing a complete list of lectures.
