genealogical note on my project's beginning

Recently, I fell “victim” to an overwhelming need to go through all seven years of my postings on Habermas (to both the Spoon Collective—now dead—and to the Yahoo! group) in order to synthesize my views, not so much for a sense of integrated perspective on Habermas, but for an integrated sense of “Gary” as that dialogue role or discursant relativized to Habermasian issues—my own perspective relative to that extended dialogue with others on Habermas. In other words: to clarify that discursive dialogue role apart from and with Habermas (defending him) as a singular identity—the apart-and-with as integrated conceptual design—relative to those themes, views, responses to others, and influence by others.

having fun (wish you were there)

Life is a work-in-progress. Then you die.

All of what I’m up to is based in conceptual and evidentiary research that has preceded this evolving venture for a long time. Yet, the topic which turns up next (for any given week or month) depends on near-term influences on some part of the work-in-progress mixed with my mood.

Thank you for your abiding (I hope) interest.
