Divide Ourselves


The Continental/Analytic Divide

Eric Schwitzgebel | The Splintered Mind | 10th June 2022

Continental philosophy follows Nietzsche, Heidegger, Foucault, and Derrida, while the analytic school adheres to Frege, Russell, Wittgenstein, and Quine. As this analysis of mentions in different journals shows, the publications of one school rarely covers the work of the other. Nietzsche, especially, seems to be mentioned very infrequently for "such a historically important figure!" (1,200 words)


Reading Ourselves To Death

Kit Wilson | New Atlantis | 21st June 2022

Even as some mourn the demise of the book, we are ever more assaulted by text.

Text is perfectly suited to the age of data, being searchable. All of these words "allow us to construct a simplified parallel reality alongside the unbearably ineffable one" (2,380 words)


Do you need to construct a simplified parallel reality alongside your unbearably ineffable one?
Sure you do. Make sure it's a good one: build it from five outstanding reads, every day.
