I always really appreciated Michael Hardt posting his reading notes on Capitalism and Schizophrenia, and that kindness inspired this page. These are my notes for some of the texts I use frequently. They are of course not authoritative, so use them at your own risk. Some are more carefully edited and well-articulated than others. None are as good as what Hardt posted. With those caveats, I am putting them into the common stream, hoping they might be useful to others. I am sharing them subject to the terms of the GNU General Public License, which means essentially: you are free to use anything you find here, as long as 1) you say where you got it from, 2) you don't use it as a machine to extract money from others, and 3) you share it with others like it was shared with you.
