Connecting with a post from last week on ‘stay-at-home’ adult children and the categories of ‘youth’ and ‘student’, here is an interview, “Being Young Sucks”, with Lawrence Grossberg on his new book Caught in the Crossfire: Kids, Politics and Americaâ€™s Future (via ted @ differences & repetitions).
As a sidenote, there is an interesting lecture by infinite thought on
Fate, Resignation, Persistence, Affirmation, Endurance: Beckett and Stoicism (via anne @ purse lip square jaw). I enjoyed the take on Badiou’s evental ethics. It really reinforces in my mind the radical philosophical humanism of Badiou’s position.
