fish on the economy

Stanley FishStanley Fish is known throughout the academic world as the author of a staggering work of literary criticism genius in Milton studies. (He worked hard to recover an appreciation of the the use of rhetoric in constructing meaning.) But he’s also a devout believer and brings his prodigious intellect to bear on many topics in Christianity and theology. He’s recently been blogging at the New York Times under the title Think Again.
