Future, Present, & Past:
Speculative~~ Giving itself latitude and leisure to take any premise or inquiry to its furthest associative conclusion.
Critical~~ Ready to apply, to itself and its object, the canons of reason, evidence, style, and ethics, up to their limits.
Traditional~~ At home and at large in the ecosystem of practice and memory that radically nourishes the whole person.

On the off-off-chance that anyone reading here has not already decided how they might help the relief effort in the aftermath of the Haitian earthquake, I pass on this link to the organization Partners in Health, commended by Peter Hallward, a philosopher who has translated Badiou as well as written a significant book on Haiti. On the donation form there is a drop-down menu where you can specify that you'd like your contribution to go to the earthquake relief effort.
