One of the Gang of Four

Gentlemen and scholar Graham Harman has a new blog, which I suggest you consult. I have disagreements with Graham's perspective, but this is all the more reason to read him as it is no doubt a sign he is correct. One thing I certainly value is his sincerity (for me a cardinal virtue). I can also endorse this point by Graham:
"It’s interesting to note that Franz Kafka, who made perhaps the fewest technical experiments with language of any great 20th century writer, may turn out to be the most important of them all. In fact, he has my vote already."
Simplicity, it seems to me, is the most difficult of achievements.
