What a nice day: No fog, even a hint of sunlight, toasty even; no screaming in the house – the mother of the year downstairs finally learned to keep her big stupid mouth shut; no bills in the letterbox, and a good book to read: MULSOW, Martin (Ger.): Prekäres Wissen. Eine andere Ideengeschichte der Frühen Neuzeit, 1. Aufl. Berlin 2012 [Precarious Knowledge. A Different Intellectual History of Early Modern Age]. I am glad to learn that my head is still working. Looking at MULSOW’s footnotes I realise that the literature of the 2000s and half of the 90s just passed me by, high time that I try to keep connected and avoid to get lost entirely. There were some very interesting research activities in the field of knowledge, intellectual history etc. of the Early Modern Æra, at least I recognize names of one or two modern authors he cites.
Looking for some music that would mirror the light feeling of this afternoon I found a little piece by Darius MILHAUD (Ger., Eng.), a Caprice, capriccio, something small, play~ and joyful.
I hope you like it, and may this light carefreeness stay a bit.
