Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Bird Watcher's Log
Although the weather limited our forays out into the bush, we still made a good number of sightings: a bunch of Badious, a few Hardt and Negris, some Benjamins, a Heidegger, a Lacan, and a Derrida, not to mention the obligatory Toni Morrisons. There were no Agambens, curiously, although those have been common in recent years, and no Zizeks, either, which were once de rigeur. Needless to say, the elusive Wittgenstein continued to prove elusive.

There was a Fish, actually. A lone Stanley. And, yes, the Frye appears to be instinct.

I thought you were the Wittgenstein?

I am, at times. But I haven't used him in an explicitly literary setting like the Louisville Conference yet, though I did make a point that I would, with more time, have given him credit for inspiring. This time I was Benjamin, my other mainstay.

Oh Please

It's a by now established "fact" that the very existence of Wittgenstein is largely theoretical, especially when "you" "are" "him." L.

Re: Oh Please

L? Again?


If I were Wittgenstein, I'd be grumpier and a lot more brilliant.
