Mediated Pornography: Final Reflections (V) You don’t get to read much about Margaret Grebowicz’s personal stand on pornography in her book Why Internet Porn Matters. A committed philosopher herself, Grebowicz prefers to sit at the margins of the discussion and bring different perspectives into conflict. Her last chapter, “Pornography, Norms, and Sex Education,” is perhaps the only […]

But by the end, memory remains remarkably elusive—as elusive as le temps perdu. A review of Alison Winter, Memory: Fragments of a Modern History (University of Chicago Press, 2012) Image is of “Cairn” […]

From Alexia Raynal, Zeteo Assistant Editor 16 September 2012 I would like to begin this week of reading by calling attention to one of Kitty Calavita’s most recent books: Invitation to Law and Society (University of Chicago Press, 2010.) There, Calavita argues that legal constructions shape human behavior, and, in turn, human behavior shapes legal constructions. […]

A point of information... This book was translated as "A Fortnight in the Wilderness" and included as Appendix 2 in "Democracy In America: Historical-Critical Edition", edited by Eduardo Nolla.

And, continuing the segue-ing, here's an old (and traditional) Gary Snyder poem I just came across yesterday: Seaman’s Ditty I’m wondering where you are now Married, or mad, or free: Wherever you are you’re likely glad, But memory troubles me. We could’ve had us children, We could’ve had a home— But you thought not, and I thought not, And these nine years we roam. Today I worked in the deep dark tanks, And climbed out to watch the sea: Gulls and salty waves pass by, And mountains of Araby. I’ve travelled the lonely oceans And wandered the...
