The Daily Eudemon is one of the Internet's oldest blogs. It has been in continuous production since its founding in 2004.
The Main Theme: The Daily Eudemon primarily explores modernity and how to thrive (or, at least how to survive) in modernity, both by exploring how modernity arose and modernity's ongoing danger to human flourishing.
Idiosyncratic Themes: TDE is also eclectic. Much of its humor is deadpan irony . . . and often sardonic. Friday is dedicated to a weekly drinking column (Brews You Can Use), primarily because long-time readers have come to expect it. There are often frequent excursions into prose style and literature.
The idiosyncratic are often tied to the main theme (the problem of modernity), but sometimes, they're just offered because they are good (and thereby opposed to modernity, if only indirectly or obtusely).
