About the Newsletter

Like Office Hours, but for Life

Once a week, I bring you a brief reflection on the best idea I have read or encountered in discussion with students or fellow professors.

Newsletters also routinely feature: book recommendations; poetry; links to great online lectures; podcast suggestions; articles worth reading; movie reviews; gossipy anecdotes about historical philosophers; practical advice on cultivating attention; answers to your burning questions; invitations to embrace your current existential crisis; and the occasional gif.

This newsletter is and will always remain free. I won't collect any information beyond your email address and name (because it's hard to email you otherwise). I promise not to give your email address to anyone, or to use your information for any malicious, creepy, or money-making purposes.

You can unsubscribe at any time.

For Those Who Wonder

Will This Be on the Exam? is written by Paul Camacho, an award-winning teacher of the humanities at Villanova University.
