For Monday

Fortlon__uqbar__orbis_tertius_by_blu_remi-d658pjr Monday, we’re reading the story “Tlon, Uqbar and Orbus Tertius” – Part mystery, part….well you’ll see.  I’ll tell you straight out -this is a tough one, so don’t feel bad if you’re a little lost – we’ll talk it out.  It will help if you dust off your Philosophy textbooks and take a short look at  Subjective Idealism, especially as presented by 18th century philosopher George Berkeley. If you have a chance, you can also read this interview with Borges where he talks about these ideas:
