Veritas Odit Moras

by davidbjensen

Truth hates delay!  Which is precisely why The Chronicle of Higher Education presents Arts & Letters Daily, a heady website with content updated 6 out of 7 days of the week on philosophy, aesthetics, literature, language, ideas, criticism, culture, history, music, art, trends, breakthroughs, disputes, and even gossip.  The main columns are “Articles of Note,” “New Books,” and “Essays and Opinion.”  Brand new content is at the top, while the older stuff remains as one scrolls toward the bottom…and a lengthy scroll it is.  This site presents a comprehensive array of vetted intellectual output in dynamic splendor.  The daily updates notwithstanding, this is a site to be visited time and again, as it provides loads of links to well respected global news sources, scholarly magazines, book review columns, erudite blogs, etc.  Suffice it to say, there is far, far too much to take in during one sitting!

 

And if you’re wondering, veritas odit moras–“truth hates delay”–is their motto; taken from line 850 of Seneca’s version of Oedipus.

Oh yeah, one more thing…*wink/nod* to my little sis for calling this one to my attention.  Thanks, Erika!
