1. Alain Badiou | The Rebirth of History: Times of Riots and Uprisings | Verso | 2012

2. Perry Anderson | Considerations on Western Marxism | Verso | 1976

3. Ian Bogost | Alien Phenomenology, or What is it Like to be a Thing |  Minnesota | 2012

4. George Berkeley | Three Dialogues between Hylas and Philonous | Hackett | 1979 [1713]

5. James Warren | The Presocratics: Natural Philosophers before Socrates |  California | 2007

6. Mikhail Bakunin | Statism and Anarchy | Cambridge | 1990 [1873]

7. Quentin Meillassoux | After Finitude: An Essay on the Necessity of Contingency | Continuum | 2010

8. Tiqqun | Raw Materials for a Theory of the Young-Girl | Translator/publisher unknown | 2001 [1999]

9. Ring T. Cardé and Vincent H. Resh, eds. | A World of Insects: The Harvard University Press Reader | 2012

10. Kathy Acker | Blood and Guts in High School | Grove | 1978

11. David Chalmers | The Conscious Mind: In Search of a Fundamental Theory | Oxford | 1997

I don’t have time to annotate all of these, but basically I’m just doing a lot of reading in idealist philosophy (inspired by the Speculative Realists’ desire to imagine a metaphysics in a pre-Kantian fashion and Badiou’s call for a controlling “Idea” in future political activism or protest), pre-Marxist (or co-Marxist) political theory, and cognitive theory (including that of animals!) in terms of its possible relationship to Speculative Realism (otherwise known as Object-Oriented Ontology). The Acker book might seem random in that context, but I assigned it for my Experimental Fiction class and haven’t read it yet.
