This is actually the fourth video I’ve made for what is currently being referred to as Catalyst Academy. For now that’s a working title, but hopefully it will stick. The following lecture is about Ralph Waldo Emerson’s iconic speech The American Scholar. I absolutely adore this speech because in it Emerson lays out many of the same ideas I have concerning academics, the role of “scholars” or writers in society, and how people are to behave and act in a republic. This video is also a chance for me to show off my Don Quixote statue and my pathetic attempts at humor.
Hope you enjoy.
