“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

Joy on Bennett

Hoarding can be fun

Eileen Joy explicates Jane's recent keynote at the Medievalist's conference “Animal, Vegetable, Mineral,” at which I clearly should have been. I can't wait to see her work on Bohm because I love his approach to quantum theory—my bad for mistaking her view for Jane's in an earlier post. With a Bennett audiofile!

If we're going to get past correlationism, we all need to take the Middle Ages seriously, for a number of reasons.
