Week 2 : I.1 13.36 to I.2 47.34

Eeeep! I'm very sorry. I just realized that these were posted on personal LJ, and not the community. I hope everyone's voyage through FW is going well. Where are y'all at?

This week's reading is I.1 13.36 to I.2 47.34. Fweet elucidations for these pages are here.

Note: I've turned on the Show FW text option on Fweet, so the elucidations are much easier to track down. It's much more convenient.

I had a lot of fun with last weeks reading. Yesterday, for completeness sake, I read them out loud in the garden while my girlfriend napped. Wonderful stuff. I was able to read ahead a little, and based on how things have been going (on my end) I've decided to crank up the speed a little. Is this okay?

The New Science

Joyce drew heavily on the theory of history propounded by Giambattista Vico in Scienzia Nuova or The New Science. The whole work is permeated with a commodius vicus of recirculation (3.2). You can read a summary of the New science here at the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.
