“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

After the Postsecular and the Postmodern

I can't recommend highly enough Alex Andrews's essay on Hägglund and Bataille, which I'm reading online. Thanks to Alex and Anthony Paul Smith, I'm now digging into Smith's new essay collection on religion. It's really really good. And it's directly relevant to the discussion about Hägglund and time.

Thanks for the plug. I'm not very happy about the price, but I think it may be cheaper for people if they buy it via the Book Depository. Free International Shipping! And the British Pound isn't as strong against the dollar as it used to, so it comes to about $35.
