Overview

This book is a collection of twenty distinct philosophical reflections, some nearly of book length. They cut across the full spectrum of the most fundamental questions concerning Truth, Beauty, and Justice, featuring original interpretations of almost every canonical thinker. Above all, the essays demonstrate a revolutionary mind that defies conventional binaries, such as Science and Religion, East and West, radical Right and far Left.
