Ah, so Charles learned everything he knows about sex from Barthes. Much is explained.
What about the Barthes illustration?
Awesome list! I would add "On Man's Need for Metaphysics" by the great pessimist (and all-time bitchiest queen of the prose form) Arthur Schopenhauer. (In "The World as Will and Representation" Volume 2.) So relevant to everything happening today.
Nicely obscure reference, SuperGP. Even I forget who it was who said that originally, but it's also spoken (by a black actor) in Lars von Trier's film "Epidemic". The strangest moment in a very strange film.
Cioran's A short history of decay should be on the top of this awesome list.
"In everyman sleeps a prophet, and when he wakes there is a little more evil in the world...
"It is not altogether comfortable to live among people who feel themselves suddenly heir to vast possibilities they surely have the right to possess but will in all likelihood not get." -- Clifford Geertz
I'm all for clarity in language, something should be expressed in the simplest terms possible but not simpler :)
So I'm annoyed at the pseudo-intellectual bullshit of "Theory as a missile that seeks and destroys what it seeks."
Fuck that, why not just say "Do theories destroy what they seek?" Much simpler isn't it?
