* purrs in appreciation *
SO cleverly funny, it made me want to rush out and get my teeth into it.
But where ? Can I claw it out of a Scottish den ?

Hi Aetixintro Thank you for sharing your read. I looked it up on Amazon and it has a wealth of positive comments. One, however, was slightly critical and mentioned 2 other books which may be worth a look-see. Sagan's ' The Dragons of Eden' and Jacques Barzun's ' the House of Intellect'. I haven't re...

Hi Non Sum I'm writing this 'post-vent' ( see Dear Diary ) and post-shower. Now, I'm going with the flow. Well, for some reason I feel like defending Nietzsche. When I first started reading about his ideas - I was quite turned off. Nasty little man. And I can't, right now, think of the moment when h...

Thanks, RachelAnn

I hadn't heard of this before - wikipedia set me straight on its background.
'Whoa' indeed.

So, what is it that has you 'tripping' about the Parisian arcades of the 19th century ?

Un morceau, pretty please ?

Quirky

Hi To balance out the 'heavies' I like to read the quirkies. We mentioned a few on the 'old' PN forum, like 'the Thought Gang' by Tibor Fischer. I've just started reading ' Salmon Fishing in the Yemen' - Paul Torday. Written in a diary-style, plus emails and correspondence - it offers whimsy, reflec...

Great questions Sally, and very helpful in moving the discussion along.
My head is fair birling with it all....but I'm really enjoying this thread.

a lot to chew over....but in the meantime I have dropped a few of N's thoughts in to the 'Philosophy of Mind' forum, under 'Slap and yell'.

"A great man, did you say? All I ever see is the actor creating his own ideal image." (BG&E 97) Hi again Well, I've been trying to get a fix on the Fred-man. I found Wikipedia useful in gaining a quick sense of background and main ideas. I admit to having skipped to the 'Maxims and Interludes' part...

Hi Sally

I picked this book up a coupla days ago, and promptly put it back down again.
Didn't even get past the Introduction.

I am willing , however, to be encouraged to delve once more.
