it was amazing
bookshelves: philosophy, general-favorites
Read from October 16, 2011 to April 04, 2012

Okay, so I didn't actually finish this book although I really, really want/intend to. I have so much writing on it and that parts I did read influenced me immensely...Talk to me if you want to discuss (or read it together? it's not an easy read but is amazing for conversations in history (except we never have any, awkward)/about current events). I have an article/interview with Dr. Nieman as well. Unfortunately, I couldn't keep renewing from the library so until I buy a copy this will be on hold.

Quotes Mishti Liked

“In the most general terms, the Enlightenment goes back to Plato's belief that truth and beauty and goodness are connected; that truth and beauty, disseminated widely, will sooner or later lead to goodness. (While we're making at effort at truth and goodness, beauty reminds us what we're hold out for.)”
