Oct 11, 10

Read from August 12 to October 11, 2010

Ambivalent. I liked the readings of new international regimes of law and power, and found the interpretations of specific philosophers pretty compelling, but thought in the end its depiction of contemporary society unconvincing--a bit too reminiscent of all the talk of "global village"/twitter revolution--and that its emphasis on the radical difference between this contemporary society and past eras to be too overstated. I also thought the idea of the multitude was generally too vague.
