Continuing with the Amartya Sen book. Delightfully written, especially after slogging through Rawls, which is deservedly influential, but so abstract and repetitive. Sen uses vivid examples from Indian and Western culture, and is sometimes snarky. There were some really useful moments early in the text; righ tnow he is positioning himself in comparison with a tradition, so there's not so much that's speaking to me as far as potentially writing. I need to look at my Bleak House chapter, and possibly the Trollope chapter as well, as the focus of both is appropriate and could definitely direct me towards relevant material.

Fuzzy headed, today, however, and making less focused progress in my reading. Still, progress is progress, and not every day is going to be idea.
