    1. Dit boekje is zeer aangenaam om te lezen, maar er staat weinig nieuwe ideeën in. Het boekje vertelt het relaas van de evolutie van de mens als landrot naar zeevaarder. Een "zeemacht" heeft altijd bestaan, denk aan Cartago tegenover een landmacht als Rome, maar de "zeemacht" werd met Engeland pas echt "zeemacht" na de ontdekking van de zee als nieuwe dimensie in filosofische/geopolitiek/religieus vlak. Schmitt ziet de opkomst van kapitalisme/calvinisme/internationalisme/s de noodzakelijke premis [...]

    2. Carl Schmitt was a great reader of literature. He says that 'Moby-Dick' is the greatest maritime epic since Homer's Odyssey. I immediately pored over Moby-Dick, and by God it is indeed!

    3. Read the new Telos edition of this work with introductory essays. Apparently this edition hasn't made it to yet. This is a long essay-most of Schmitt's books aren't much longer than essays when subtracting his signature elaborate apparatuses-with virtually no footnotes by the author-plenty by the translator, though. Schmitt is at his most whimsical here; his sources appear to be few, yet his imagination expansive. His discussion of piracy may be almost completely drawn from a single book by Gos [...]

    4. What is Seapower?This book is translated by Simona Draghici. Since it is out of print I will summarize its twenty sections and give my thoughts at the end.Myth and HistoryOne.The text begins with the epigraph 'As told to my daughter Anima'. When we begin to read, we wonder if we are reading a fairy tale. And it does begin that way. We learn that Man is a terrestrial being. Earth is represented as our mother in innumerable myths. So it seems that it is only the first of the ancient four ancient e [...]

    5. Schmitt's essay at the center of this short book is fascinating, but the asides (especially the orthographic ones) injected throughout the text are distracting. I understand that some of the footnotes might be necessary for those not fluent in German, but what was really irritating is that words and concepts that didn't seem to merit much of an aside got a sometimes comically long one, whereas concepts that don't translate well, and really do require some explanation, went unaddressed.As to the [...]

    6. Fantastic, short, readable, even **fun** narrative of world history understood as a conflict between land powers and sea powers. This was Schmitt in the middle of his career, embarrassed by his opportunistic and misguided flirtation with Nazi totalitarianism, reinventing himself as only a genius could.

    7. If you take into account that this was written after Haushofer and Mackinder (never mind Ratzel and some minor XIX century authors), this is quite weak. Seems like geopolitics wasn't Schmitt's strong side.
