A big event in intellectual history takes place this week.
I have tickets to see The Force Awakens with my two little boys this Friday night. Which is an exciting reminder of my childhood, when my dad always made sure we attended one of the first showings whenever a new film in the original trilogy hit theaters. I love it when movies are events, and for me and millions more there is no bigger movie event than a new Star Wars film. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the meaning of Star Wars–personal, cultural, historical, intellectual, political, or whatever.
