Dear <<empyreans>>,

reading and why:

Daniel Colucciello Barber's /Deleuze and the Naming of God: 
Post-Secularism and the Future of Immanence /- for arguing for immanence 
in this world

Daniel Colucciello Barber, Alexander Galloway, Nicola Masiandro and 
Eugene Thacker's /Dark Nights of the Universe/ (with Francois Laruelle's 
"Black Universe" ("/Du Noir Univers/") essay) - for its commitment to 
do-it-yourself thinking

Gilles Deleuze's /Cinema 2/ - for its political imagination

Charles Dickens' /A Tale of Two Cities/ - for writing

Roberto Esposito's /The Third Person: Politics of Life and Philosophy of 
the Impersonal/ - for not having to be read to be understood

Michel Houellebecq's /Submission/ - for a symptomatology that strays 
into philosophy

Karl Ove Knausgård's /Boyhood Island /- for assassinating style (here's 

László Krasznahorkai's /Destruction and Sorrow beneath the Heavens/ - 
for visiting China

Alphonso Lingis's /The Imperative/ - for straying outside philosophy, an 
ethical or ethological itinerary

Michael Peppiatt's /Francis Bacon in Your Blood: A Memoir/ - for 
visiting old friends, may their impeccable appetites and extravagant 
manners save us from serious people

Larry Siedentop's /Inventing the Individual: The Origins of Western 
Liberalism/ - for its serendipity
