My acquaintance with philosophy professor Lou Marinoff began several years back. As we were reaching the zenith of our cultural outreach to the community at the bookstore in Warwick, Lou volunteered to give a talk on Moby Dick. For me, it was affirmation that I was on the right track – that somehow we could measure ourselves by books that help us look more deeply into our own nature. Lou’s charming personality, his quick witted style, his philosophic perspectives and teaching authority, his worldly vision…he was one such man that exemplified what it means to become a whole person.
