Comment: 	Re: SHK 18.0103 A Question

I seem to have started quite a thread with my innocent question, "What 
is 'presentism'?"  I'm even tempted to wade in myself, but I tremble at 
trying to hold my own amongst such thought-provoking, albeit sometimes 
completely mystifying, commentaries.

I am glad that I rejoined SHAKSER.

Comment: 	RE: SHK 18.0103 A Question

In the midst of his latest post, John Drakakis mentions "the 
sophisticated transformations of late capitalism."  Ever since 
encountering the phrase in Frederic Jameson's work, I've wondered about 
it.  How, at this (or that) point in time, can one know that we're in 
the phase of "late capitalism."  Might we not be in the middle?  It 
struck me then, as it still does, as a kind of nostalgia for a time that 
has not yet come, when capitalism has vanished (or itself been 
transformed) from the workings of the world.

Maybe Joseph Egert could consult the classics?:

'Facts stand wholly outside our gates; they are what they are, and no 
more; they know nothing about themselves, and they pass no judgement 
upon themselves. What is it, then, that pronounces the judgement? Our 
own guide and ruler, Reason.'
(Marcus Aurelius, 'Meditations')

Response to the Roundtable discussion has not taken off as I expected or 
perhaps hoped that it would. Maybe I got it wrong. Maybe discussions in 
the medium of e-mail depend upon relatively immediate exchanges and are 
not appropriate to the delayed gratification of weekly digests.

Anyway, since this thread involves Presentism, might some of the 
participants here, as one has already this week, consider submitting 
future remarks to the Roundtable discussion?
