Recent weeks have been so fruitful! Besides what’s below (going back to mid-November, the most recent “saturdaynote” before today), all of the g.com discussions that emerged during the presidential campaign have been gathered into a “democratic America” project, which will develop further during this year. Current events evince my interest in philosophy of law, which gave me occasion to discover that a large project from mid-2018 never got listed in a g.com site Area (now listed).
Now, back to being drawn into “something grand” (Dec. 15).

They have in common deserving appreciation of their path’s integrity.
A young sociology grad (I guess) from Norway engaged seriously with a posting I did at the Facebook/Habermas Page, so I gave an evening to replying thoughtfully: His confusions portended emergence of important differentiations by his own engagement! I don’t find error in that; I find emerging self-actualization. So, I portrayed us in shared engagement.
An old scholar of Heidegger’s work—“an octogenerian,” he calls himself—invited discussion of a chapter of his long-ago published book, uploaded to his academia.edu page.

Monday, I finished reading Heidegger’s Contributions to Philosophy: from enowning—beginning-to-end—in one week exactly: 360 pages
that are generally regarded as the most difficult in philosophy.
It all makes sense to me—coheres. Then, I re-organized the “Heidegger studies” project—not so much in light of the reading. I’ve wanted for a couple of years to do the re-organizing.
Now, I’ll get back to other things, probably not having something new
to share until the middle of January (while being grandly thankful for what I “forget”).
