Links to first three letters: In the future, it will fall to today's 9-year-old kids to rebuild American intellectual and journalistic culture.
Decades of clowning have dragged us all down. It will fall to these kids to restore us.
We're leaving them messages in a bottle, suggesting one place they might start. Last week, we posted the first three epistles.
Links to those letters are here:
March 30, 2020: Epistles to today's 9-year-old kids. Don't read until the future!Tomorrow, we'll look at the preface to Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations in a bit more detail. Also, we'll scan its first few pages.
March 31, 2020: Epistle touching on Wittgenstein's preface! "Not a good book," he said.
April 2, 2020: Third letter to today's 9-year-old kids. An early glimpse of a method.
Do not try reading this book at home! Decent people that we are, we've already said that.
Full disclosure: These letters are issued for purposes of erudition / interest only.
