Scars of blogging

This book is about the emergence of rapture in thought, an inquiry into what it enables us to think.
Such is the alluring opening line of Jill Marsden's After Nietzsche published by Palgrave in 2002. A friend who knows told me it is an excellent book; mine for £55.

There's an absorbing discussion not unconnected to this unfortunate fact at Scars of Différance - a blog that enables those unable to afford such sums to think by linking to downloads of translated books by European philosophers - from Agamben to Wittgenstein via Deleuze, Heidegger and Lacoue-Labarthe - following a comment by an American translator bitterly offended by such benefaction. The blogger's evident hurt at the comment ("what a brute way of speaking to the other") and impassioned defence is well worth reading, as are the many further comments.
