may i add, that the youth group is “Misled Youth” (http://www.misled-youth.org/), a killer org with great folks, and the “unnamed college” in Lions and Lambs was blatantly berkeley, but don’t let that make you see it. an kahlil kahn’s website is: http://www.myspace.com/kahjeekhan
and the link for 123 tompkins, for all brooklynites to note, is http://123communityspace.org/about

- Watch out for that swinging pendulum!
this is pretty nerdy but i feel its my responsibility:
“most of what we can think of doing isn’t particularly dangerous to daily life’s maintenance. But maybe that’s part of what we need to think freshly about, in terms of political engagement. Threatening daily life’s rhythms can easily backfire, given the deep desire for security and comfort.”
that IS spinoza. he was very much against violent and uprooting kinds of revolution (and has been hotly criticized for it), because those things are always bad for and contrary to human desire.
not that spinoza has convinced me to be an anti-militant in any sense, just an interesting coincidence of thought.

- Where Did Science Come From? Where is it Going?
In what way does Conner dicuss the validity of scientific method, beyond the ways in which it has been manipulated by ideology? I mean, among those challenges to dominant science that you mentioned are a lot of arguments against the possibility for any sort of “real” reason or logic, (and therefore normative science) and I’m wondering if Conner, in the context of a People’s History of Science, makes any statements on the plausibility of there being a “true” or “pure” (for lack of a better word) logic on which science can be based (even if it gets it mistaken sometimes).
(…thinking in relation to Gorz’s book on economic reason, where he asserts determinedly that there IS reason and logic but that ideology – economic, particularly – is what skews science away from it.)
