If nobody has anything further to say about the Tractatus, I will tomorrow make 
my suggestions for possible a second read, and also ask for (i) additional 
suggestions, and (ii) whether this group should continue at all or be 
deep-sixed.  It may be that we have not hit a "tipping point" in members or 
that the members we have are already over-committed to other groups, or that 
the Tractatus was simply not interesting enough or too well understood already 
to sustain much confab.  But if I'm going to have to make 3/4 or more of the 
posts on every book and so few comments (regardless of who makes them) get any 
response at all, my sense is that we don't have critical mass or sufficient 
interest to continue.

If any of you DO want to continue with community reads of philosophy books in 
which you have some interest, I recommend that you try to get a philosophy 
friend or two (who is/are not either nuts or overly aggressive) to sign up!
