Finished John Seely Brown’s Storytelling interview with Seth Kahan. In it, he talks about mutually contradictory assumptions as underliers (he doesn’t say that, exactly). Does Brown know the work of Isaiah Berlin? And as far as the question “What is the pond the ripple is on?” . . . my goodness.
Speaking of Berlin, here’s a facsimile of a typed letter to Edmund Wilson 019591130 with a note about Pasternak’s Zhivago. I wonder whether Wilson replied; I can check at home later.
