    Canetti draws a parallel between ruling and paranoia. To escape the systematic persecution of Jews, Canetti fled to Paris in and next year he immigrated to England, where he mostly lived for the rest of his life. This discipline itself—never motivated solely in reaction against, never inspired by any sense of responding to other texts in the world not as Canetti did with his or in his book—supported as well my sometimes broken commitment to read no less than ten pages per day and to write a book reply for any book I finish. Canetti assures us that one should finish his section on the survivor with a sense of disgust and he states—whether we think facilely or not—that the end of the survivor may come about sooner than later. Canetti died in Zurich on August 14, I remember him looking at me with considerable confusion, since the thank you of my statement stood just as wholly sincere and self-evident as the criticizing portions of my thank yous.

    Politically leaning towards the left, he was present at the July Revolt of — he came near to the action accidentally, was most impressed by the burning of books recalled frequently in his writingsand left the place quickly with his bicycle. His parents spoke German with one another as their intimate language and as a code when they did not want their children to understand what they were saying. He has warmly emphasized what Goethe, for instance, has meant to him as medicina mentis. Despite the horrors of the conflict, the Swiss capital was a safe haven for Canetti during his formative years. And I mention all of this to speak to the value that gratitude holds for me in the face of such negative relationships; for me, precisely gratitude turns them into lessons worth learning.
