Abstract

I have often been asked how my Middle Tennessee heritage has affected my way of looking at the world, my Weltanshauung, my vision of the inclusive social-economic-political order.  Adam Smith, the patron saint of economics, once said that the task of the philosopher is to observe everything and to do nothing, while Nietzsche, the great German skeptic, warned us that the world looks different from different windows.  Is there something about a "Middle Tennessee window" on the world that is distinctive enough to warrant attention?
