Noticed: Three Compositions on Philosophy and Literature

Share |
Charles Bernstein

Poet and blogger Charles Bernstein has recently posted a highly insightful essay on Gertrude Stein's The Making of Americans.

The origins of this essay go all the way back to Bernstein's undergraduate days, when he wrote a thesis on Stein through the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein. After talking about this essay's origins, Bernstein jumps into a nuanced and fascinating discussion of the subject — which is well worth the read.
