The San Andreas Fault in the Modern Mind

Percy delivering the 18th Jefferson Lecture in the Humanities.

Three items:

First a filmed record of the lecture

Second, an amended transcript of the lecture

Third, the very excellent Patrick Samway, SJ overviews Percy’s lifelong concern with science.

By the way, the photo below was taken by artist George Rodrigue: check out Wendy’s blog (George’s widow) and her discussion of Percy.
