So what is the philosophical view like from 7200 feet?
Well, to begin with, its about as close to the view from nowhere as you can get!
Moreover, a brief run down of our history, establishes beyond doubt that Laramie was ripe for philosophy even at its inception. When the Union Pacific Railroad came to southern Wyoming in 1868 it attracted all sorts of lawless ruffians and scoundrels and Laramie boasted a respectable 23 saloons, one hotel, and no churches--approximately the same bar to church ratio as for standard APA convention locations.
But even if we aren't any closer to God here in Laramie, we're surely closer to the Forms than all those lowlanders out there. You might even say we're at close range.
