Notes, topics or text 

Fitch has not heard of a lecture on "Freedom and Government" given at Occidental College by BR. However, BR did lecture to his Philosophy Club of undergraduates at the College. Fitch recollects that occasion in great detail. BR spoke on something like "a theory of non-emotive language". Fitch drove him back home and BR spoke at length about the CCNY controversy. Fitch recollects another gathering, this time of a group of intelligentsia, including himself and BR. BR came to the defence of Christianity. "There was a part of him that was deeply Christian, in his devotion to a Christian ethic of love. But he couldn't work it out in a coherent and consistent manner." Fitch offers an analysis of BR's character.
