Sure. I've ordered peter sloterdijk's "Critique of Cynical Reason". :p

Well, I give you credit. I find the subject matter too tedious. I can never figure out where guys like Zizek are heading, or what they are suggesting. Not that I don't understand. I get it. Really. But it just seems like pointless circular cynicism to me. Let me know if this new book clears things up a bit!

I read that when it came out. Great book but don't expect Sloterdijk to clear anything up! ;-)

Philosophers NEVER "clear" things up... at least, NOT until they've been forgotten. :)
