Phillip Lundberg grew weary of programming computing machines one day and decided to devote a little more time to philosophy, having completed a Master's degree at the New School he had already been dabbling a bit with a translation of Plato’s Parmenides. The end result, about five years later, was his first book: Tallyho ~ The Hunt for Virtue: Nine Dialogues by Plato. This translation is an attempt to re-instate Friedrich Schleiermacher’s Plato Interpretation and provide English readers with a book of dialogues that truly introduces them into this convoluted maze of ideas, a maze with a roadmap furnished by Schleiermacher. Lately Mr. Lundberg has been pursuing a better Kafka translation and his latest book, Essential Kafka, has been availa ...more

“table tennis in the afternoon...”
Phillip Lundberg

“But the problem with readers, the idea we're given of reading is that the model of a reader is the person watching a film, or watching television. So the greatest principle is, "I should sit here and I should be entertained." And the more classical model, which has been completely taken away, is the idea of a reader as an amateur musician. An amateur musician who sits at the piano, has a piece of music, which is the work, made by somebody they don't know, who they probably couldn't comprehend entirely, and they have to use their skills to play this piece of music. The greater the skill, the greater the gift that you give the artist and that the artist gives you. That's the incredibly unfashionable idea of reading. And yet when you practice reading, and you work at a text, it can only give you what you put into it. It's an old moral, but it's completely true.”
Zadie Smith
