Reading for 9/15

Next week we’ll begin Emil Cioran’s History and Utopia. Let’s read from Eugene Thacker’s foreword all the way through the second chapter, “Russia and the Virus of Liberty”; (in other words, stopping at the chapter titled “Learning from the Tyrants”). There’s some genuinely astonishing thought on display throughout this book — looking forward to exploring it with all of you!
