Hey there!

Anyone remember Phillip Rieff? The sociological giant who pretty much coined the phrase "therapuetic" in relation to our own culture, and who put out his last book in the 1970s, on teaching? Married to Susan Sontag? Okay, that Philip Rieff!

Anyway, he's not published anything since 1973, and would seem to have faded into obscurity.

But, now, all of a sudden, at 83, he has four new books coming out!

So, miracles can happen in academia. Maybe, Camille Paglia will be inspired to finally release her long-delayed Sexual Personae Vol. 2.
