Cornel West on Living and Loving Out Loud

Cornel West, one of America's most popular leading intellectuals, just paid a visit to Stephen Colbert to talk about his autobiography. The man has a lot of good ideas, a compassionate heart, enviable erudition, personality to spare, and a clear vision of his philosophy. Despite the chaotic nature of the mental associations he often decides to employ (just see the non-sequitur lessons he derives from a colon and a comma below), West is an expert rhetorician who could convince a fly that it is mightier than the fly swatter :)

If you think his charm and personality go far beyond the rational power of his arguments, I'd say you are right... In all fairness, and as you might be able to tell, I have a love/hate relationship with the dude's ideas, but that's no reason why all of you should not benefit from watching him in action.

This must be the first time I ever hear Brother West speak without making reference to St. Augustine :)
