I like that one, but it's lots of short tracks. I dunno how it would go over as an introduction to them.
@poetix you get a compliment in Gus' book
When it comes to the ‘way of thinking and existing’ stu , I think there’s still a place in my heart for the sort of hyper-foundationalist Paul Christiano type of reasoning and discourse. What I dis- like is the <em>SSC</em> thing of, take some anecdotal evidence for <em>y</em>, now construct a grand uni- fying theory of the social world based on <em>y</em>. I get enough of this shit being continental social theory adjacent! And the good continentals are much better at it! <em>Ribbonfarm</em> is pretty cool, but, I swear, most <em>Ribbonfarm</em> posts I’ve read would in fact be way better if they drew on existing continental social theory vocabulary and reference points. I think really the rise-to-visibility of hardcore techie nerds with hardcore con- tinental background, like Lucca Fraser and Dominic Fox, made a lot of the nerds-rebuilding-a-continental-social-the- ory-analog stu I associated with the ‘post-rationalist’ scene feel very rudimentary. </p><!-- /wparagraph -->
