“We could call this the fantasy of a ‘paperless’ philosophy, a philosophy that is not dependent on the materials upon which it is written. As Audre Lorde reflects, ‘A room of one’s own may be necessary for writing prose, but so are reams of paper, a typewriter and plenty of time.’ The fantasy of a paperless philosophy involves the disappearance of political economy, the ‘materials’ of philosophy...”
