Nobel winner Saul Bellow is dead at 89.
Because Herzog behaved like a philosophe who cared only for about the very highest things--creative reason, how to render good for evil, and all the wisdom of old books. Because he thought and cared about belief. (Without which, human life is simply the raw material of technological transformation, of fashion, salesmanship, industry, politics, finance, experiment, automatism, et cetera, et cetera. The whole inventory of disgraces which one is glad to terminate in death.) - from Herzog by Bellow
