"These memoirs, written in the 70's, paint a picture of the intellectual landscape which formed Erlanders thinking. He was inspired by the social democrat Ernst Wigforss and Swedens perhaps most famous economist, Kurt Wicksell. His world view can be summarised as follows: government needs to be stronger in order to unite the common interest of the people. In practice this social democracy leads to corporativism."

"Interesting work on language; it does a good job of explaining the logical positivist position. Ayers position can in some ways be summarised by the following words: "There is no field of experience which cannot, in principle, be brought under some form of scientific law [...]"(page. 32)" Dec 10, 2014 12:58PM

Making the List by Michael Korda
“Escapism sold books, to be sure, but not nearly as many as were sold by exposing America’s flaws and making the average American reader (and book club member) look closely at his or her most cherished social assumptions. Americans might not be eager to accept integration, feminism, homosexuality, juvenile delinquency, and the drug culture– or to shoulder the blame for the existence of these problems– but they were certainly willing to read about them.”

The Concept of the Political by Carl Schmitt
"Schmitt was a Nazi, or at least closely associated with them. Let's get that ugly fact out in front of the bullet-speckled walls. He penned anti-Semitic articles and openly praised the Nazi government during the Night of the Long Knives. Why he di..." Read more of this review »

Julian the Apostate
“Some people are fond of horses, others of wild animals; in my case, I have been possessed since childhood by a prodigious desire to buy and own books.”
Julian the Apostate

Amity Shlaes
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent.”
Amity Shlaes, Coolidge

Joseph Brodsky
“Mandelstam was, one is tempted to say, a modern Orpheus: sent to hell, he never returned, while his widow dodged across one-sixth of the earth's surface, clutching the saucepan with his songs rolled up inside, memorizing them by night in the event they were found by Furies with a search warrant. These are our metamorphoses, our myths.”
Joseph Brodsky, Less Than One: Selected Essays

Murray N. Rothbard
“In short, and this is a highly important point to grasp, the depression is the “recovery” process, and the end of the depression heralds the return to normal, and to optimum efficiency.”
