Summary/Abstract: This festschrift is a “liber amicorum” (“book of friends”) and as a philosopher of sorts I am interested in the genre and in its cultural invention as a means of understanding how I might proceed. I am greatly honored that my friends and colleagues should take the time to respond to the themes in my work and I am particularly grateful that such a group of international and able scholars have contributed. So let me express my deep appreciation and respond in the only manner I know how. After years of university life it is difficult to invent new forms or to experiment when the rituals and habits of critical thought anchor me in a series of set plays.
