Studies in a Dying Culture

Podcast series under the auspices of

Think Twice Radio

The title takes off from my blog “Studies in a Dying Culture”(July 2007 - ), with a precedent in a talk I gave at the American Philosophical Association in December, 1988. The title originates in the work of Christopher Caudwell (1907-1937), autodidactic philosopher and cultural critic and martyr of the Spanish Civil War.
