  1. Hi there, please allow me to introduce my anonymous self, a real self who's actually studying under you through Open Uni at the moment! After tonight listening to all your lectures up to Week 5 I can really say I wouldn't be surprised to find myself apply to do a Masters under you if possible after completing my Arts Degree - started offline @ Monash some years again, my only having rejoined the scholarly fray this Semester. I've dreamt of Oxford & Cambridge but come to think about it more seriously it seems to my mind like you perhaps are specialising really at the crucial inter-section of all which matters in this Universe, and insofar as that seems the case I would much rather scholarly activity with someone of your intellectual calibre; I should add how delighted I am that you chose to offer your skills to the online world of Australia's education sector (I work during the day, currently)... So what exactly would this self like to do a Masters or further study in? Why, of course, I wouldn't be finished Arts till at least the middle of next year but I can guess, can't I? You spoke about ... thinking about the different dimensions of globalization as an assortment of ideas- i.e., not a necessarily separate set of technically stratified classification-based orderings...and that immediately drew me to think you are of an unusually sophisticated frame of mind (if I may so, in a genuinely humble fashion) regards that idea ... and your idea about going "right back to the movement of the first humans out of Africa, as the beginning of a process of globalization in terms of a anthropocentric view"... I found absolutely fascinating...Anyway, enough waffling from me...Your funny cartoons (and, incidentally, your aforementioned quotes together all remind me of the famous US, self-styled "pragmatist philosopher" Richard Rorty - and - I look forward to exploring this fascinating subject with you this Semester

  2. I really like the web site it has a lot of good information.......... thanks. Essay Writing.
