Buy Liah Greenfeld's most recent book, Mind, Modernity, and Madness here: http://amzn.to/14a0Ldp
Her sociology class was among the most influential (probably the most) of my formal education. The aim of her research is a better understanding of manic depression and schizophrenia, diseases which even today are poorly understood by most scientists and psychiatrists. Greenfeld's theory of symbolic reality, the symbolic basis of both the mind and culture, has had immeasurable effect on my thinking, personal philosophy, and writing. And it's a perfect example of a foundation of worldview to which other elements have adhered over time. This is what The Nerdwriter is all about.
P.S. Sorry about the blips in audio; my mic is on the fritz.
