In clearing out some old boxes of papers, I came across the very beginnings of an outline of a course built in a comparative mode. Unfortunately all that exists of the proposed course is the listing of books by McLuhan and the names of authors to read alongside.
Mechanical Bride: Barthes Mythologies
Gutenberg Galaxy: Ong Ramus, Method & the Decay of Dialogue
Medium is the Massage: Baudrillard Simulations
From Cliché to Archetype: Frye Anatomy of Criticism
And the posthumous Laws of Media was paired with the far earlier Vico.
And so for day 698
