Alive in Milwaukee

I haven’t posted in a while.  That’s because for the past few weeks I’ve been moving and preparing for school in Milwaukee.

I’m extremely excited to start.  I’ve already had the orientations about the school and I’ve met some of the other grad students who seem very cool.  My apartment is in a section of town called “Riverside” which is a nice neighborhood.  Within walking distance are two coffee shops, six bars, a convenient store, a park, and a clothing store.  If you want to go out to dinner, it’s always a bar.  Very different from Utah standards.

This semester, I’ll be taking Political Philosophy, Plato, and Philosophy of Religion.  Because of my new busy schedule, I’m not sure that I’ll post that much, but I’m hoping to keep people updated and to bring out some ideas that I’ve learned and put them out there in the open.  School starts tomorrow and I’ve already had one reading assignment called “Two Concepts of Liberty” by Isiah Berlin.  So far, it’s a very readable and interesting essay.

At any rate, I’m mostly moved in and I hope to challenge myself intellectually and socially in this new climate.

About shaunmiller

I am a Ph. D student at Marquette University. The primary purpose of this blog is to get my ideas out there, and then have other people scrutinize, critique, build upon, and systematize beliefs. This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.

    Im happy for you! It’s great to have new intellectually stimulating scenarios and new atmospheres in which to explore.
    If your anything like me when you stop learning and stepping out of the known is when life is a bland envelope that is addressed nowhere special.

    Hopefully you will write on political philosophy. I am eager to vicariously learn about that too!
