I had not been nourished in my childhood by the works of Dr Seuss (1904-91), and have only been aware of him since about 1996.
He is the only prominent person that I know of who studied at both Oxford and Dartmouth. He was an undergraduate at Dartmouth (1921-25), and studied for D.Phil in English Literature at Lincoln College, Oxford, without taking the degree.
Here appear occasional jottings of my random musings. Profound or jejune, they reveal the contours of my mental universe, with world history, intellectual history, civilizations, philosophy, religion, society, knowledge, and books as some major themes. Since May 2011, this blog has been exclusively focused on Singapore. All my other reflections are now posted in "Notes from Noosphere" (see link under "Miscellany" on the right margin).
