“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

Professor Morton, What Are All These Talks Doing on Your Blog All of a Sudden?

Well, the thing is, I did some talks that were adjunct to the Wellek Lectures. And I was waiting until those had been done and unveiled before I put the others together. You'll see that pieces of the Lectures are in those other talks. 

Dark Ecology is such a nice project right now. Graham has been writing about politics a bit recently, and so am I, at this point. One has to give us a bit of a chance, you know. Hard to get everything together all at once, although if you read my stuff a bit you'll see it's quite strongly implicit, and sometimes explicit. It's called anarchy.

The privative of archon does make an interesting connection to Gnosticism.
