Robert Paul Wolff - On Eric Auerbach's "Mimesis" (1 of 2) - The Philosopher's Stone: DOWN MEMORY LANE - April 2015
I launched this blog in 2007 and began posting seriously in 2009. In 2010, in a fury of activity lasting several months, I wrote and posted a Memoir that… Lovely discussion of Auerbach's contrast of Homer vs story of Abraham -- Wolff heavily influenced by Auerbach's underlying theory re the connections between how the "real world" is conceived, including man's place in it, the linguistic resources available (e.g. Song of Roland vs Decameron), and authorial choices. - both parts copied to Instapaper

Richard Marshall - Stewart Home’s po-mo homer » 3:AM Magazine
As much an essay on post Kantian (and post Hegelian) German philosophy -- Marxism, materialism, phenomenology hermeneutics, post Kantian, structuralist, poststructuralist, especially Nietzsche and Heidegger -- as on an album of readings of his work by Home. And a further riff on epistemology and varieties of scepticism, including a sort of take on Pyrrhonism as not an extreme version of scepticism. Heidegger's misreading of Nietzsche is of a piece with his embrace of the fascist side of Plato, which was part of Nietzsche's rejection of even the non Socratic Plato. Further long riff on Beiser rejection of Kantian aesthetics in Diotima's Children and the lack of aesthetic criteria after the avant_guard. Home attacks the shallow art world from another direction - mostly as a bourgeois status game.
