Yesterday, Arts & Letters Daily linked to Brian Leiter’s attack on Derrida’s reputation on the irritatingly Anglo-American Butterflies & Wheels website. Curiously, it appeared on October 31st on Leiter’s blog. (It calls the excellent Mark Taylor “yet another non-philosopher”, which I would take as a compliment: the further from elbow-patch logicians like Leiter the better, I’d say).
Why did ALD – which famously runs the banner ‘Truth hates delay’ – not link to it then? Does it have a policy of avoiding blog entries? I don’t visit the site very often anymore, so I’m unsure. But it seems that way.
The site linked to its editor’s own article on literary Darwinism. Good thing that site isn’t a blog. I’d like to have had this article to discuss when I wrote my own piece on the matter Struck by Death. It’s blog though.
Elsewhere, MobyLives disinters its interesting article on Dutton himself.
