Spinoza, Benedict de
On The Improvement of the Understanding
Purchased at Talking Leaves Books.
One of my all-time favorite books of philosophy is Deleuze's book on Spinoza, Expressionism in Philosophy. (Two of my other favorites are his books on Nietzsche and Bergson). After reading D's book, I got the itch to read Spinoza himself, so I went out and bought this one. I have never gotten through it.
Ah, to return someday to the planes of immanence. Wait, I am already here!
I have been meaning to return to the film by Bela Tarr that I mentioned the other day, but I am afraid I have run out of time this morning.
If you go back a couple of days, you can see what I am talking about. The literary outlaw Richard Deming responds in the comment box.
I keep thinking about it.
There's something there.
What is it?
You should really see it and tell me what you think. All of you.
