1. Intellectual historian Wilfred McClay on the idea of Lincoln, or our changing views of Lincoln’s greatness.
2. Sometime conservative historian of education and intellectual Diane Ravitch on how teachers’ unions are NOT the problem. You read that right. She also cites the UDHR and the current economic climate on why unions are important in general.
3. Baylor professor of philosophy Alexander Pruss speculates on why we, as humans, move with more epistemological certainty from effects to causes than from causes to effects, even when reason tells us what will happen. Perhaps this is why we have academic history departments in universities, but not departments for futurists?
