Here are my latest musings triggered by the Coursera-based course I'm currently enrolled in:

Note to readers not enrolled in the course:
It's a massive open online course (MOOC) offered by the University of Michigan. The title is Fantasy and Science Fiction: The Human Mind, the Modern World. The video lectures are given by Prof. Eric S. Rabkin. The first unit dealt with the Grimm Brothers and the fairy tales they collected.
