Poetry. NOT IDEAS finds its life force especially in Wittgenstein and Williams, in Philosophical Investigations and Paterson. It alternately celebrates and condemns, coruscating with intelligence, wit and heart. Readers of 20th and 21st Century's philosophy, poetry, science, politics and religion will recognize the aggregations accumulated in the mind NOT IDEAS invokes, accommodates and regards with love, horror, awe and close attention.
