About

A small place for me to write my musings on philosophy, publishing, and philosophical publishing.  I intern in a small academic press in Washington, DC, all the while maintaining my connections to the very crazy part of the academy that I escaped from.

For those of you who wonder about such things, the title comes from an essay in Umberto Eco’s The Limits of Interpretation that discusses interpretation and overinterpretation; translated into English, it means “the intention of the reader,” which seems to be a perfectly good title for a place to discuss all things bookish and philosophical.  I’ve got a longish post explaining it here, along with some nifty pictures and philosopher art criticism.

All views expressed on this site are my own, and should be in no way associated with any of my employers or educational institutions, past or present.
