There's definitely things I plan to modify for a book version, but I think the overall argument is novel. It's long, so I encourage skimming... particularly in the Poe chapter, I feel I get a bit long-winded.

I have read about halfway through it!
Scattered comments.

p1- last 4 lines re: "non anthropocentric reality"... I see how the theist v. christian theist distinction was important for you to make.

p8- nice discussion of uncanny, fantastic/uncanny categories.

I considered myself fairly well read on philosophy but I somehow never encountered Schelling, so thank you for the introduction to him. Is he popular these days? Discussion of him was involved a great deal in the Poe section.

p120[111] Justifying the new scholarship angle I see. "Those who consider his mysticism in detail fail to consider the role of slime and the role of the disgusting in significant detail." laugh. A striking sentence.

Hey thanks LD! Glad I could introduce you to Schelling. He's often really hard to follow but he has his moments. Much of his natural philosophy is totally refuted by modern science but he nonetheless has some interesting concepts of nature. In some ways I think of him as sort of mashing up Kant and Spinoza.
