“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

Hey Sorry the Class Cuts Out

WTF? Anyway one only loses about two minutes, in which I reiterate about Shelley and poetics and the future. It doesn't matter. The good stuff is the Keats stuff.

Just listened to the podcast. Seems to be all there, including the Shelley bits on poetry and futurity. That whole idea seems very Meillassouxian. Or the reverse, Meillassoux's realm of justice seems to be a futurity casting shadows into our reality (thought). Even Shelley's atheism sounds a bit like Meillassoux's belief.
