This week we are reading a section out of David Abram’s Spell of the Sensuous, Mike’s favorite book. Minimal reading is the end of chapter 4 (Animism and the Alphabet) starting with the section “Of Tongues In Trees”. This is 19 pages. You could also choose to start from the beginning of the chapter for a 40 page reading that talks more about the changeover from oral to written language.
Also, Chapter 2 is a great explanation of phenomenology in case you still can’t pronounce that.
