the Search for a Theory of Everything,” New Yorker, 21 July 2008, 33.
2. See David A. Price, The Pixar Touch (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2008).
3. David Graeber also discusses “low theory” in his book on anarchism. He
writes: “Even more than High Theory, what anarchism needs is what might be
called Low Theory: a way of grappling with those real, immediate questions that
emerge from a transformative project” (9). I think Graeber and I are thinking
along the same lines here.

2. See, for example, Roger Ebert, “March of the Penguins,” Chicago Sun- Times,
8 July 2005; Stephen Holden, “The Lives and Loves (Perhaps) of Emperor Pen-
guins,” New York Times, 24 June 2005. Holden writes, “Although ‘March of the Pen-
guins’ stops mercifully short of trying to make us identify with the hardships
overcome by a single penguin family, it conveys an intimate sense of the life of
the emperor penguin. But love? I don’t think so.”
