Nix on the Scherber, word on the Borges...

Posted to What Are You Reading?

The intro to the Penguin Everyman edition I bought made me curious to read Lacan's work on the case. It was a really good intro and very forthright about the limitations and rhetorical motivations behind Freud's study (which was written when Adler was challenging Freud's model b/c of the inability to account for a link between psychosis and sexuality).

As far as Borges goes...Tower of Babel is haunting. He seems to have such a knack for disseminating material and poetic flourish. As far as yr philosophical questions go, they're insightful and I doubt I have answers. They remind me of how badly i want to take this class at the New School with Agnes Heller "Borges Philosophical Short Stories"
