    Grain of Salt
    In K. Vaidya (ed.), Teach Philosophy with a Sense of Humor. pp. 202-210. 2021.
    Imagine my surprise at discovering - tucked inside the cover of a first edition Alice in Wonderland – an unknown dialogue written by Lewis Carroll himself!

    The Postmodernism Debate in Latin America
    with Michael Aronna and José Oviedo
