Walter Benjamin

Sat, 26 Apr 2008 12:56:30 -0400
Little by little Benjamin is coming into focus. He is not one that is easy for me. He is not systematic, sometimes not even rational. He wrote few books and they are no more essential or important than any of his other essays, articles, reflections, letters, notes and fragments.

Understanding Benjamin requires more archeology than philosophy. It is quite a challenge to find a clear pathway through the forest. But each time through I penetrate a little deeper into the archive and through the “ruins” I begin to see a few “constellations.”
