We're trying to revive the analytic philosophy group discussions--if you're interested. Thanks.
Hello, praymont! I saw [John Searle's Philosophy of Language: Force, Meaning and Mind] ( among your recent additions and have been intrigued. Is this a work you would recommend? I have been several years out of university life, but Searle always irritates me in delicious new ways. At your leisure, please let me know if you found this volume of essays worthwhile. Thank you! -ExVivre
Thanks for replying. At this point I'm operating on the level of intuition and have nothing close to fleshed out. I noticed you have both in your library, so thought I'd ask.

If I make an progress that looks worth anyone's time, I'll let you know.

Thanks for your consideration.

Are you familiar enough with the works of Gregg Rosenberg and George Steiner to entertain notions of confluence between them?

Thank you,

Hello. It seems we have a shared fondness for Thomas Bernhard. If you are not already familiar with Stephen Mitchelmore, an English blogger and big Bernhard fan, he may be of interest to you. He linked to a fascinating-looking documentary available online but not, alas, with English subtitles.
Thank you for finding my library interesting. I note some of my favorite authors in the books we share including Roth, Mulisch and Musil. Your collection on Austrian Culture looks fascinating.
Thank you for finding my library interesting. I find yours interesting also, and I just ordered Harold Bloom's Modern Critical Interpretations of Musil'sl The Man Without Qualities, aft4r noticing it in yours.
I admire your patience in searching for better translations of Kant. I have loved him best of all the philosophers since college, but I never thought about better translations. I think about translations only for novels and poetry. I should know better.
I am curious as to how you found my library. Was it my interest in Broch? He is one of my heroes, for his political stance, his help for the wwii refugees, and his wonderful novels.
Consider adding the middle initial "M." to David Rosenthal the author of Consciousness and Mind.
If so, that would move him to the correct author page, and away from the psychiatrist and the German internet authors.

Hmm, only three books in common, even though I just added Rosenthal's "Materialism and the Mind-Body Problem."
