The group continues to discuss defining Art & Language in the second recorded meeting, and they are still unsatisfied with the current publication of "The Fox," specifically its editor, Joseph Kosuth. The participants also discuss class struggle, citing the writings of Herbert Marcuse as having a profound influence on the opinion of the majority of the participants. The conversation about stamping a correction in future publications of the current issue of "The Fox" continues on the second recording. The participants then discuss the historical impacts of capitalism and psychology on social relations. The participants then brainstorm how to eliminate individual competitiveness in order to relieve tensions within the group.
