Re: Kierkegaard's Either/Or

AS, enticing creature, your initials stand for the ' Art of Seduction' !!

I will return to E/O just as soon as I can.
I only had a quick read of your post- Amazing Sensibility.

I do hope others join in.....

Later.

Re: Music

Aetixintro, thanks for that. Unreadable communication - 'a subtle movement is all it takes' - Perhaps. Nevertheless, the fantasy was shared in song and lyrics.

Re: Music

Hey Arisin' - no, it's thank YOU very much ! :-) Have ter say I never heard o' Bootsy before this morning when a woodie led me to the long nose quip. If one can funk in one's computer chair, then I guess I just funked...or flunked ? Strange - in the late 70's - I was more of a vanilla-licker and if ...

Re: Kierkegaard's Either/Or

AS, if you would write a book about your life, stories and thoughts, I would treasure it over that of Kirky's any day of the week.

Right now, I feel like I want to take a break from all of this. I know you understand.

in choosing a book...

Who do we listen to, if anyone, before we decide to read a book ? The power of words….and titles and reviews....Decisions, decisions, decisions…. Recently Launt ( in Aesthetics ) introduced me to ' Who’s Afraid of Conceptual Art ? ' by Peter Goldie and Elisabeth Schellekens. Both the title and Launt...

Re: DELIBERATION AND REASON by Richard Baron

Having said that - your book is exceptionally pleasing to the eye, and the Contents page spells out clear...

Re: DELIBERATION AND REASON by Richard Baron

Hello Tom, please tell us what new insights the book has given you so that the rest of us can share it vicariously. Not everyone can read everything.
