[Xmca-l] Re: Imagination or Fantasy



In comment to Mike's comment on Varela, Rosch and Berkeley ignitions, I'd love to have a reading list on that history of events, if that's possible?

One cultural aspect to this conversation I think is worth noting is the idea that there is even a West and an East. I am attempting to get my hands on a chapter by Graeber called "There never was a West: Or, democracy emerges form the spaces between."  Considering gaps and overlaps, this title is quite compelling!

If I can imagine a point of view, need I be Western to "get it"? Or Western not to get it? Or can I learn this point of view despite that?

How is that different from reading the texts of someone who has been deceased for 80 years, versus another who has been deceased for 100 years, or 500 years, or several thousands of years? 

Just imagining differences and similarities! :)

Kind regards,

Annalisa
