People Smarter Than Me is a series in which I humble myself by recognizing superior intellects covering topics I’m already into. It started humbly with a simple two-line post, and quickly veered into deeper areas.

People Smarter Than Me – America as a creedal nation.

People Smarter Than Me, Part II – I admit I screwed up a previous and lengthy article after being called on it by Kurt Busiek.

People Smarter Than Me, Part III – Mark Shea gives me food for thought on Judaism.

People Smarter Than Me, Part IV: The Taming of the Nous – Here the series begins to really take shape, turning into attempts to examine these smarter people. In this case, it’s Thomas Merton.

People Smarter Than Me, Part V: Men and Women – John Paul II vs. Tim Taylor!

People Smarter Than Me, Part VI: DEFCONOMY 3 – Consumerism post-Implosion

People Smarter Than Me, Part VII: Meaning and Meaninglessness – Mark Shea on meaning.

People Smarter Than Me, Part VIII: The Pope and the Trailer – John Paul II vs. Star Trek!

People Smarter Than Me, Part IX: The Natural Law – Br. Robert, OP, on Natural Law.

People Smarter Than Me, Part X: The Bohemian Impulse – Me vs. Jack Kerouac and my own bohemian tendencies.
