Rousseau to the Gallows

Theory is good but it doesn't prevent things from existing -- Charcot

The past few days have a yielded an opportunity to offer my meager means to assist my wife's sister with her dissertation which concerns the Czech thinker S. Klima and his relations to both Decadence and gender studies. It has been an interesting escapade and I fear I am only troubling poor Tihana but it has been interesting to peruse Barzun and Fowlie and question the continuity from Baudelaire to Celine; this interrogation has unearthed thought on Lautreamont, which I have buttressed further with some pondering on Huysmans and Kharims and that delicious admixture of Freud and Bolshevism.
