Neil Denari’s Book List

I am primarily a reader of nonfiction, and reports, almanacs, and encyclopedias have always interested me as they dryly lay out apparently unbiased information. I am also interested in the opposite: spurious conjectures, crackpot theories, conspiracies, and theoretical arguments. Reports are not, however, immune to jargon and subtle coercion, and spurious conjectures can be very clear and persuasive. When books of any kind collapse this distinction, that’s where I find the most pleasure.

G. Spencer-Brown

Formal logic for intuitive people.

Jean Baudrillard

Design and politics colliding at a moment when everything else did too. Baudrillard’s Marxist teeth were quite sharp. I like the mood the James Rosenquist piece on this cover puts me in when I read the book.
