I gave in and finally watched the pilot of Breaking Bad. I'd been resisting it for a long time because the show sounded so relentlessly grim, but then I remembered that I like grim when it's well written and acted, and of course I'm very, very impressed. I will be catching up on it over the next month or two.
I need to start revising for my exam soon. I took a week off any kind of school work, but by the weekend I would like to have decided which texts to revise (we need to choose two I'm told). I can't do Foucault, Freud or Descartes as I've already written essays about them and we're not allowed to repeat any work. Out of interest, which two would you choose?
Machiavelli: The Prince
Hobbes: The Elements of Law Natural and Politic
Tom Paine: Rights of Man
Mary Shelley: Frankenstein
Marx: The German Ideology
Darwin: The Origin of the Species
Nordau: Degeneration & Galton: Eugenics
Frantz Fanon: Black Skin White Masks & The Wretched of the Earth
