QuotationAnd now, thank you so much for the Fiedler. It is intensely interesting and thougth provoking. As I had suspected, the arguments I tentavely put forth in my last letter had little realy to di with Fiedler whom I see to be just as "anti-academic" as I am. However, I do not think I have mastered his thougth well enough to discuss it, and as you say it would be far more fruitful simply to live in the light of some concrete embodiment of his doctrine put into effect.
