The shape-memory silicone technology I invented here in the UVA Physics Department is finally available on Amazon as EarJellies Earplugs! Translation from lab to life was harder than expected, but I'm enjoying the success. -- Lou

 Why Montaigne's Essays (selected) and Nietzsche's Gay Science? First of all, Montaigne and Nietzsche are two of the most important and influential writers in the western tradition (or, for that matter, in ANY tradition). To not have read some bits of what they wrote is extremely embarrassing. Second, they are relatively accessible, in the sense that they do not require a lot of prior technical knowledge in order to be understood at a basic level. Third, as noted above, they both have a relation to issues of objectivity -- a largely negative relation. Fourth, they are in a weird way in dialogue with each other. Finally, specifically concerning *The Gay Science*, this work is much less widely read than Nietzsche's *Birth of Tragedy* and his *Genealogy of Morals*, and yet it is in some ways better than both. If you don't read it in this class, probably you will never read it.
