Sheridan Lardner

Sheridan G. Lardner, currently a student at the University of Chicago, is studying history and philosophy and is well on his way to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in 2011. His excellence as a student is best exemplified though his dedication of much time and effort to his academic studies. In addition, Sheridan also knows the value of extracurricular activities and has tried to cultivate his interests and skills by joining clubs and organizations. For example, at the University of Chicago, Sheridan is a member of several clubs such as the Maroon Newspaper, the Gaming Guild, the philosophy club, the tae kwon do club, and the water polo club. He is also intensely interested in reading and classical literature, including such works as On Heroes and Hero Worship, The Tao of Jeet Kune Do, Pilgrim's Progress, On Liberty, Ulysses, The Brothers K, Crime and Punishment, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, The Book of the Five Rings, Candide, Leviathan, Hellboy, Forgotten Realms, Lord of the Rings, and The Prince. His favorite authors are Edgar Allan Poe, Friedrich Nietzsche, Ambrose Bierce, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Joyce, Mike Mignola, Thomas Carlyle, George Bernard Shaw, and Tolkien. When he’s not reading or participating in his club duties, Sheridan enjoys playing water polo and practicing tae kwon do and krav maga. Some of Sheridan’s favorite hobbies involve writing fiction, philosophizing, martial arts, building his Lego city, drawing, maintaining his website, and writing for the newspaper. He also enjoys working for the Field Museum of Natural History, where, for the past four years, has been a teen summer intern. In this position, Sheridan has led guided tours, told stories about the museum’s history, and trained new volunteers. Sheridan continues to maintain a website, realistpolitics.com where he gives a humanities viewpoint for a century increasingly turning away from the humanities.
