MULTITUDE OF BLOGS None of the PDFs are my own productions. I've collected them from web (e-mule, avax, libreremo, socialist bros, cross-x, gigapedia..) What I did was thematizing. This blog's project is to create an e-library for a Heideggerian philosophy and Bourdieuan sociology Φ market-created inequalities must be overthrown in order to close knowledge gap. this is an uprising, do ya punk?

German Idealism: "For a god, knowing always the proper measure"
"No power will again be suppressed, then general freedom and equality will reign among spirits! – A higher spirit, sent from heaven, must found this new religion among us, it will be the last, greatest task of humanity." Hölderlin
Yes, I'm bored of french theory. deutschland über alles. anyway. as long as this is modernity, the determination of "as" firstly touches what does not come before it, the void that led the sentence to appear. that is why a german issue issued itself.
note that a 15 book schelling issue is next and there will be a suprise for all, a new schelling pdf that I made. have a nice summer! sun shines! hölderlin sings! this belated romantic suffers!
have a look at salvatore puglia. a unique encounter with his work: Christopher Fynsk' "Infant Figures"

The Rhetoric of Romanticism
by Paul de Man
For a god, knowing always the proper measure,
Touches sparingly and just for a moment the homes
Of men — unexpectedly, and no one knows when.
But then something boisterous may appear,
And wildness may come to the holy place from afar.
Grasping about roughly, it touches upon madness,
And fills some intention thereby.
Gratitude doesn't follow the gift
From the gods immediately:
It has to be deeply studied first.
For if the giver hadn't been cautious,
From the blessing of the hearth both
Floor and ceiling would have gone up in flames.
