The Grossman Chronicles

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — m759 @ 10:16 PM

“Shakespeare, Dante, Milton, Homer: those writers trafficked in
witches and fairies and ghosts and monsters. Why shouldn’t I?”

Novelist Lev Grossman in The New York Times  this afternoon

Grossman’s father was the poet Allen Grossman.

See that Grossman in this journal, as well as a search for Holy Water.

Verhexung

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — m759 @ 8:15 PM

"Philosophy is a battle against the bewitchment [Verhexung ]
of our intelligence by means of our language."

— Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations , Section 109

"The philosophy of logic speaks of sentences and words
in exactly the sense in which we speak of them in ordinary life
when we say e.g. 'Here is a Chinese sentence,' or 'No, that only
looks like writing; it is actually just an ornament' and so on."

— Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations , Section 108
