I see what you mean, and that happens to me too, but I don't mind when people (mis) ascribe to me views that they share, I am happy to simply correct that, that strikes me as "honest misinterpretation."

I think all of them do it, otherwise he'd have no interest in talking to them. (It = they get him to see his own confusion and ignorance)

In my experience, such people are incapable of taking me literally, which is to say, they routinely misunderstand me, and this disturbs me. I am actually not sure whether being disturbed by that is a matter of taste or a rational argument!

I love Louise Bourgeois. I have never seen this piece ("Mammelles") IRL, apparently it can be viewed at the Tate Liverpool. If anyone is there they can confirm.

I stared at this photo for a long time, thinking, "yes, she's very pretty and it is nice that her lipstick matches her nails but is that what he's trying to tell us?" Not until I read the comments and went back to photo did I get it. Anyways, I don't know you but congratulations!

I think the Hegelian reading is correct, and Creon is no worse a person than Antigone. This is also the Girardian reading.

"It is a sign of Nozick's consistency that his argument against coercive philosophy is itself far from coercive." It is rare that scholarship makes you laugh out loud.

(1) genuinely interested in understanding their point of view (2) curious to figure out what makes a weird, messed up yet smart person's mind tick I think (1) requires keeping open poss. that the person might be right, and if someone saw me in way (2) I wouldn't want their help.

Is it wrong that I never want 7yo to become proficient at reading bc it's so cute when 16yo reads out the words of silent movies (Chaplin etc.) they watch together?

Plato thought that animals had souls, but their souls were human souls which had been imprisoned by the judges of the underworld in animal bodies as punishment for wrongdoing in a past life. So that tells you who the sign is *by*

I'm fine w/ this as long as we agree that everyone he talks to is also "an educator"
