Default Benjamin's "On the Concept of History"

He's one of my favorite interlocuters and has greatly influenced my consideration of historical objects.

Enjoy!

That link only reinforced my belief that I'm not that bright.

But I could hit a curveball when I was in school. I bet ol' Walt couldn't.

It doesn't have much to do with being bright or not. But you're right, Benjamin wasn't an athlete in the least.

Why do I think of him as an art critic?

I do like the arguments about translations.

Jetztzeit and Gegenwart is a good example.

It is difficult to read German philosophy, even in German, because the German is highly specialized. Just reading the Adorno letters makes my head spin.
