The disturbing interloper into reason - Gertrude Stein's sound and object-orientated philosophy

The most disturbing interloper in the field of reason is sound, - sounding within the language itself that delivers it ... it is the 'unsound'.
Not merely 'other 'it is so refused as to not even be ... It has no validity in terms of meaning or affect. In working with Gertrude Stein's text Two: Gertrude Stein and her Brother I am increasingly impressed by how multi-dimensional her project was and still is ... very worth a rethink in terms of She seems to have been able to critique the frames of reason through language itself ... but more than that through notions of relationship between words and notions. These are so'unexpected' that throw new possibilities into the mind- new arrangements for thinking and for being then in relatio to ones thinking and hearing thinking.

I 'm starting to read object-orientated philosophy and I like this notion ... 'Larvae are creatures in a process of becoming or development that have not yet actualized themselves in a specific form. And the notion of a physical space for the incubation of philosophical larvae that are yet without determinate positions or commitments but which are in a process of unfolding'... especially in relation to how I'm trying to shape an understanding of sound in Steins work .

See Laval Subjects for more on object-orientated philosophy. To say its good stuff is understating it.
