“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

OOO Class 2: Correlationism (Video, MP3)

Me (far right) and the Gang Reading the First Critique

I loved this class, I really did. The best moment perhaps was when Sarah Juliet Lauro appeared to be clutching her chest as if intuiting the full scope of the vertigo of SR. It was also just lovely to teach Kant. “Dope.” Scooby Doo faces. And a wonderful presentation by Michael Martel.

I also kind of like the New Aesthetic look of the pixelated me, now that UStream seems to have been altered (by a relationship with Facebook?). Sorry about the ads—does anyone have a spare ten grand so I can end them?

Hi Tim,
How dependent are we on computer models to visualize hyperobjects?

The McDonald's "pink slime" video that happens every twenty minutes or so is a welcome respite as it allows me to turn my head on straight again. Thanks for posting the videos to this class!

P.S. The Scooby Doo picture somehow reminded me of that Stewart Lee skit on Margaret Thatcher and Jungle Rope Bridges. You probably avoid making that Scooby Doo noise to assert your humanity though.
