Ideas follow each other at lightning speed in this book: a great intellectual experiment that presents truths and contradictions, singularities and opposites as extreme poles of a poetic potentiality. Between lyrical emphasis and scientific scepticism, between religion and secularism, between myth and rationale the labyrinth of Franz Josef Czernin's thoughts unfold. Karl Valentin and Wittgenstein are paraphrased – and sometimes parodied – along with Nietzsche, Novalis, Hegel and Kant. Czernin's unbridled passion for meaning and boundless cognitive promise invariably infect the reader, challenging each of us to participate in a serious game of questions and answers.
