“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

That was a nice talk I think. This hotel has pretty wack Internet, so I'm going to wait to upload it.

I appreciate you coming out and I found the topic interesting. As a member of the general public, however, I felt the the talk was not intended for me. It seemed more like it was geared for graduate students in philosophy.

I assume you have friends who are not highly into philosophy. When you have conversations with them, do you readily descend into academic jargon and reference German philosophers every third sentence? I apologize if this comes off as rude, but I did leave your talk not knowing what the actual point of it was and also feeling like I needed to do a few thousand pages of reading before I could even try to figure it out.
