Welcome to Bookmarker!

This is a personal project by @dellsystem. I built this to help me retain information from the books I'm reading. Currently can only be used by a single user (myself), but I plan to extend it to support multiple users eventually.

Piety without content

the idea of being "religious" without adhering to a specific religion (which is as silly, from her POV, as speaking "language" without speaking a particular one). mostly a scathing review of Walter Kaufmann's Religion from Tolstoy to Camus, which she thinks did not choose pieces very well

Psychoanalysis and Norman O. Brown's Life Against Death

she pairs it with Herbert Marcuse's Eros and Civilization (1955) in ushering in a new generation of Freudian thought in America. she talks about eschatology and immanence which I would normally find cool but I don't really see the relevance of what she's saying
