It’s my favorite week of the spring semester. I get to stay home, ignore emails, and spend time with my family. I can also devour as many books and scholarly papers as I want. Among many other things, I am reading the following works during my spring break:
- “La tregua” by Mario Benedetti (a beautiful novella by one of my favorite late Latin American authors).
- “On inequality” by Harry G. Frankfurt. (Professor Frankfurt is one of my favorite contemporary philosophers. In fact, I have already read three of his short books, including “The reasons of love”, “On truth”, and “On bullshit”, so I am looking forward to reading his latest tome as well.)
- “Frank Ramsey: a sheer excess of powers” by Cheryl Misak. (I just finished this intellectual biography and will be writing a review shortly.)
- “Acknowledgements as a window into legal academia” by Price & Tietz (an “empirical study” of acknowledgment footnotes in law review articles).
- “The ethical algorithm” by Roth & Kearns (waiting for my copy to arrive).
