i've finally indexed entanglements: a system of philosophy: the last phase of the author process. (due out from suny, march 2017). i have often enjoyed indexing my books, but i had never tackled something like this: 400 pp of extremely referenceful text. it took frigging weeks, and is still no doubt multiply flawed. quite the fucking slog by the end. the book is certainly about many things, ideas, people.
generating an index is a hermeneutical activity, creating an interpretation of a book, and some things surprised me actually, like the fact that the nature of the self, if any, is one of the dominant themes. i have found that looking at the index can be a good way to get a sense of an academic book, especially where it seems likely that author had a hand. anyway, here it is.
