Statement of Intent

This blog has been a long time coming, in fact I opened this account back in February,  but since my friends, roomates, and even father have got the jump on me, its time to get going.

The purpose of this blog is to be a place to collect my thoughts on current reading projects, mostly theory/philosophy oriented at the moment, as well as political commentary, and poor attempts at music criticism. With fourth year bearing down on me, as well graduate school applications, I need more than ever to convert my thoughts into words, a process that hit a wall in the past year for myself. Thus, there’s no attempt to make these posts for others consumption, unless one is interested. I will be trying to summarize and comment on various texts, in order to develop a more coherant grasp of a work and develop my critical lens.  I’ve found over the past year that I’ve despised the writing process,  so this will be an effort to overcome that.

Here’s a sample of what I currently have lined-up


Write-ups on the two books by Bhaskar will be coming soon
