Dear @spheres readers:
A reminder that our next live conversation will take place this Thursday, May 11th at 12 pm MDT (time-zone conversion).
Here’s a link to the Zoom video conference registration and call-in instructions:
We can use this topic to post thoughts, questions, ideas, and suggestions for the discussion ahead of the call.
I, for one, am looking forward to discussing Sloterdijk’s remarks on a “philosophy of sweetness” (pp. 90-96).
Moreover, I’ve been preparing intensively for this discussion. Witness the scene of decadent scholarship from the Farmers Market in Longmont, Colorado this past Saturday:
“…what could seem more cloying, sticky and unheroic than the demand to participate in an investigation of the doughy, vague and humble-matriarchal space in which humans—at first and in most cases—have settled as seekers of security, good-natured inhabitants of normality and inmates of contentment institutions?” — Pete S.
