Continental Taste-Envy

Filed under: General — Tags: — m759 @ 6:35 AM

The title is a phrase by Kyle Smith, who writes with
considerable taste and little envy.

Then there is Rebecca Newberger Goldstein . . .

See as well Heidegger at Davos.

Grundlagenkrise*

Filed under: General — Tags: , — m759 @ 12:00 PM

The title was suggested by a 1921 article
by Hermann Weyl and by a review* of
a more recent publication —

The above Harvard Gazette  piece on Davos is
from St. Ursula’s Day, 2010. See also this  journal
on that date.

See as well a Log24 search for Davos.

A more interesting piece by Peter E. Gordon
(author of the above Davos book) is his review
of Charles Taylor’s A Secular Age .
The review is titled

The Place of the Sacred
in the Absence of God
.”

(The place of the sacred is not, perhaps, Davos,
but a more abstract location.)

* Grundlagenkrise  was a tag for a Jan. 13, 2011,
review in The New Republic  of Gordon’s
book on Cassirer and Heidegger at Davos.
