thoughts (and links) of a retired "social scientist" as he tries to make sense of the world.....
what you get here
This is not a blog which expresses instant opinions on current events. It rather uses incidents, books (old and new), links and papers as jumping-off points for some reflections about our social endeavours.
So old posts are as good as new! And lots of useful links!

winter arrives in the village
A few flakes of snow drifted gently down at 08.00 and the village (1,300 metres high) now lies with a thick covering.....and winter preparations are not quite complete.
This is my neighbour in the early afternoon preparing to recycle his cow manure on his fields.
My house is in the immediate background.
It's remarkably warm in the house with its solid rock base - although the car doors are already frozen.
