On his book In Praise of Copying

Cover Interview of November 09, 2010

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“What will the world look like when there are enough copies for everyone?”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Dominant legal-political structures that define copying today obscure much broader processes of imitation that have constituted human communities for ages.”

On the second:

“In fact most Buddhist practices and much of Buddhist philosophy is actually a profound analysis and evaluation of our existence as beings that imitate.”
