I was hoping for the grail that would make sense logically necessary and although he makes a good case even he ends up by saying that it is difficult to answer those who are content with words and ideas. he doesn't say anything about Nietzsche's intuition that the apparent world must disappear too but you'd think he would.
anyway I wrote four more pages after figuring all this out. there are at least five pages inside of me waiting to be written as explanation for these four. then, finally, I think I can leave Deleuze and move on to Levinas although I've already mentioned him countless times but I think I need to formally and systematically look at a couple of things he does.
I got a few other things done today too including deciding how to run class next week and answering some administrative email and stuff but there are still about a hundred things waiting for me to turn my attention to them including a bunch of papers to grade. tomorrow I think I will read Stein most of the day and look at some of their response papers so I can get a batch of those back to them at least.
I just paused and wrote up some lecture notes. I wasn't going to lecture. hm.
brain needs off switch after days like today. there are off switches available but I'm trying to conserve them.
bed. morning do it all again.
