After a week on the road — and sparse blogging — here are some of the best links of the last few days:
1. A video of Jacques Derrida talking about the fear of writing over at orgtheory.net.
2. Philosopher Alasdair MacIntyre (if you haven’t read his After Virtue, you should) discusses money, globalization, and the financial crisis over at Prospect magazine here.
3. The NY Times has a really interesting piece on how the causal relation between daydreaming and sadness is from the former to the latter, not the other way around. Yet another reason to focus.
4. Oxford launches Thomas Weber’s Hitler’s First War.
