In praise of the common

A book for all those interested in communist political philosophy: Cesare Casarino & Antonio Negri, In Praise of the Common: A Conversation on Philosophy and Politics.  Two concepts -- conversation and friendship -- play important roles in CC's introduction. I was glad we found time to renew both last night at dinner.  


  1. Nice book all-around (though I've read only about 1/2 of it so far). Casarino clarified a lot of things for me, and I think for Negri too (since he can verge into obscure sometimes).

  2. Yes, this is a great book, particularly Casarino's introduction. I wonder if it is reviewed anywhere? I would be great to read a review from you on this blog (hint hint). Anyway, welcome to the blog world, RG!

  3. I feel like a jerk asking this because of what it implies, but what did y'all find useful in it?
