A Manual of Epistemic Sex Or How to Write a Maxim

Read
77 printed pages
Conceived as a set of six dialogues between two inquisitive minds, the Uncertain Old Man and the Certain Old Man, this book is a foray into the mechanisms of meaning making and meaning breaking in maxims. Encapsulating human experience, both communal and individual, maxims are seen to effect the abstraction of personal emotion into behavioural norm. The reflective and self-reflexive register of the dialogues is interspersed with passages of highly poetic reminiscences about lost love; these and the quasi-erotic pleasure derived from argumentation and logic reveal the reasons why this book is conceived as a manual of epistemic sex, which is, ultimately, a hymn to philosophy, the love of wisdom.
