The title of Mark Leidners new gorgeously made book Returning the Sword to the Stone is apt. Like a reverse Arthur Pendragon, we decide not to go for the holy grail, not to accept our righteous lineage, and maybe not to pursue a noble quest in human development but stay home and continue whipping ourselves with Christmas lights and theorizing about why we do it. Were considering our crazy human condition and laughing at our own limited idea of ourselves.
