I really like the way you formulate your point, especially that last bit after the semi-colon. And I totally agree with you. I was reading Beyond the Pleasure Pleasure Principle again recently, so I may have been thinking about the desire for return along those lines without realizing it. More recently, I've been reading some classic texts in Birmingham-related Culture Studies, which is why I zeroed in on the term "youth culture."

Yes, I'd be interested in finding out whether Descartes ever suffered from hemorrhoids : )

C. just checked out a book entitled, Teenage, by that guy who wrote England's Dreaming. It's a popular-press title, but I wonder if it intersects with any of your meditations on the subject. I did notice the phrase "Youth Culture" in the book's subtitle.

Thank you for reminding me of that book! I've spent a lot of time in and on England's Dreaming.

I think all philosophers of consequence have had a painful condition of some sort.
