Around the Book

Henry Sussman

Fordham University Press

Part of the system's very openness is its resistance to the mutating static and noise that are the critic's walking papers, less than reputable edition of the social contract. According to Benjamin, in this interpellation into Convolute D of The Arcades Project, by the time the conversation arrives at the weather, it has sunk to the emptiest chatter. Critique, in keeping with Benjamin's long-term struggle to make it compatible with attitudes and practices of material history, is no longer the paraphrase, expiation, and distillation of telling concepts from diverse rubrics and housings in which they have been archived, with no anticipated or foregone outcome. There can be no sublimation, purification, or occultation of the material from critique. Furthermore human's tendency, to manage moods and transitions, along with similar conditions of attentiveness, via a range of approaches including pharmacology is redolent when physical turbulence remained the property of the engineering school.

Keywords:   Benjamin, The Arcades Project, critique, moods, transitions, attentiveness, pharmacology
