Bryant: Strategic Vitalism

I like it! Sign me up! I call it animism.

This is another of those posts of Levi's that's as good as reading a published essay.

Man! Things sure do happen fast in the blogosphere, don't they? I've got a post at New Savanna in which I argue that this vitalist move is a necessary and salutary response to the deep pressure Western conceptualization has been subjected to over the last several decades. I even offer a bit of neural evidence indicating that conceptual systems cannot be readjusted piecemeal, at least not in a fundamental way. Rather, they must be retuned and reconfigured through and through. That's why vitalism is now knocking on the door.
