Why the wacky name, "Goethea"? Well, if you know me, you know that I've been obsessed with (among others) the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. After almost a decade of this obsession, I think that I am coming to an understand of why Goethe has had such a tight hold on my mind. I believe that he had a view of the world that is neglected in a significant way by the English-speaking world. I have been trying to articulate what that view is for years, and I really haven't made much progress. I see this blog as just another notebook in pursuit of that goal.
