Awesome, great to learn about Saul, many thanks for posting this.

Three things that stood out to me:

#1. Reason for turning down a math PhD program (gotta love that mindset)

#2. Turning down being a department chair (seductive).

#3. Not succumbing to a dominant approach (it is very easy to ride a wave, very hard to try and start a new one, or find something useful in an earlier one, or just going another route)

I also think that 1-3 go together nicely.

I really liked the nature of greatest accomplishment at UT-San Antonio, an exciting challenge.

Nice to hear about the house in Provence, too.

Btw, not my area, but psychoanalysis is well and alive...if you look at the right place(s?)...

Congratulations on a great trajectory and the many accomplishments!
