Maybe I have selective memory, but these are the books I remember us mentioning for what we’d like to read next.
Gibson-Graham: The End of Capitalism (as a segue to their Post-Capitalism?)
Nietzsche: The Birth of Tragedy or something else? Mark mentioned Beyond Good and Evil and The Genealogy of Morals. I mentioned Birth b/c Walter Kaufmann always insists that Nietzsche should be read in order.
Virno: A Grammar of the Multitude
I know there are more but I’m freezing up…let’s post them and other ideas in the comments.
NB: I’m becoming a proponent of trying to keep some sort of thematic momentum going and think it’s something to consider. For example, this summer when we moved from Agamben’s The Coming Community to Thrift, it felt like a pretty hard break, but then Thrift kept talking about Homo Sacer, and that made me think it would have been the perfect bridge between the two. Of course, I didn’t know Nigel was going to pick up on Agamben either…
With that in mind, I realize my selective memory has picked up on themes that apply to my research, and that I’d rather read “source material” like Nietzsche than other people trying to use it, but I’m also thinking about how we could at least move laterally from Holland. An obvious answer is to take up some of the readings on communism that Mark has suggested in the past. Another answer might be the minor marxism Althusser essay/book Holland mentioned (wink!) or Benjamin’s “On Violence.”
I guess, in the end, I’m becoming more interested in depth: I’m picturing it like we throw Eugene’s book into the middle of the table, stare at it, and decide what we have learned from it, where some of those ideas originated and where he went with them, then we either trace back over some of his steps (like Nietzsche preceding/inspiring D&G) or explore other things he mentioned that pique our collective interests. Anyway, just a few ideas. Let us autogest!
