Listening to Zucki

It's such a pleasure to listen to Prof. Moshe Zuckermann speak! He is immensely erudite, but, more importantly, his erudition spans many fields, seamlessly: philosophy, history of philosophy, art, art history, politics, cultural history, political history, theory of music, history of music, and more.

His explanations are clear, and he can summon his vast multi-disciplinary knowledge to offer fascinating examples and analogies. Truly, I have encountered very few speakers who are so at home in all aspects of European culture and so very intelligent. Bliss!

and his e-mail username is mzucki. Zucki!

update: It may be worthing noting, too, that he's a neo-Marxist.
