About Scott Abbott

Ph.D. in German Literature from Princeton University, 1979. Then I taught at Vanderbilt University, BYU, and Utah Valley State College. At Utah Valley University, I'm Director of the Program in Integrated Studies and former Chair of the Department of Humanities and Philosophy. My publications include a book on Freemasonry and the German Novel, two co-authored books with Zarko Radakovic (published in Serbo-Croatian in Belgrade), and translations of a book by Austrian author Peter Handke and of a catalogue of an exhibit called "The German Army and Genocide." More famously, my children are in the process of creating good lives for themselves: as a model and manager, as a teacher of Chinese language, as a watershed scientist and science writer, as a jazz musician, as a corrections officer, as university students, and as parents. I share my life with UVU historian Lyn Bennett and our yellow dog Blue. Some publications at http://works.bepress.com/scott_abbott/

    it was interesting to me that you saw a vision, i mean that you saw it (of course you saw it), i thought one could say i have a vision as you say in german, ich habe eine vision which sounds more intuitively, more allencompassing than seeing. but seeing you see it. vision is latin seeing anyway, so you had a doublevision.
    studies in poodlemetaphors. as if they secretly marching up the mountain. good to hear about the new translation/publication etc.

    let’s call it the ‘two poodle law’.

    you’re lucky for having met all those people and that index book sounds a great idea to make, yet another project. somewhat recently watched a farocki film, ‘barbara’, only 2 years old or so, about eastgermany. it wasn’t bad.
