On January 21st, Aschehoug will publish SprÃ¥k og oppmerksomhet [Language and Attention] an essay on the value of language and attention after July 22nd. This is a reflection on the value of literature, and of certain kind of philosophy, and as such also a reflexion on the value of the humanities today.
