“Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.”—Samuel Johnson, Rasselas

For those not familiar with Imlac, he is the elderly sage who acts as a guide to the Abyssinian prince and his companions in Johnson’s famous moral fable Rasselas. Some years ago I took “Imlac” as my nom de plume, as an apt patron of my meditations on philosophy and literature. Thank you for visiting.
