Book #65: Charles Taylor, Modern Social Imaginaries

I have a lot to say about my “final” book of 2005, Charles Taylor’s “Modern Social Imaginaries (Public Planet)”. I can’t remember a philosopher I’ve enjoyed as much since my Rorty marathon earlier this year. However, I’m on my way out of the house for New Year’s eve (with a bottle of Pol Roger 1990 Cuvee Winston Churchill in tow) so consider this a placeholder post for the moment. I’ll update it with more after the celebration wears off, and I have some thoughts about my year in books and how I intend to guide my reading over 2006.

But first, Happy New Year to everyone reading, and have a terrific celebration tonight!
