The book publicity tour begins (or continues?) next Tuesday at a talk hosted by Concordia University of Edmonton (@CUEdmonton). I’m looking forward to sharing some of what Dr. W. Ezekiel Goggin (@w_ezekielgoggin) & I have been working on. Pre-order your copy of Mysticism & Materialism in the Wake of German Idealism from Routledge Books (@routledgebooks) by clicking on this link right here.
And here’s a snippet from Ch. 2 of our book, from which I’ll be reading aloud on Tuesday. It deals with ‘mysticism’ & mining (yes, as in actual resource-extracting mines!) in early nineteenth-century Europe. The quote from Baader offers us a nice reminder that the rhetoric & reality of mining often overlapped.
