“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

I have Roland Barthes' posthumously published The Neutral here in Davis and I'm really enjoying it. It's the first Barthes I've read for ages.

That was the beginning of my university enjoyment actually. Reading Barthes in my year between school and university. I went to Paris and there was this Barthes exhibition in Les Halles.
