all at once, pell-mell

There’s a new storypost up at “Reading Notes: The Intertwining – The Chiasm”: this one is a translation of the first sentence of the Merleau-Ponty essay that forms the heart of this fiction/translation/exploration/reading project. You can find it by clicking on the red link in the text below!

“If it is true that as soon as philosophy declares itself to be reflection or coincidence it prejudges what it will find, then once again it must recommence everything, reject the instruments reflection and intuition had provided themselves, and install itself in a locus where they have not yet been distinguished, in experiences that have not yet been “worked over,” that offer us all at once, pell-mell, both “subject” and “object,” both existence and essence, and hence give philosophy resources to redefine them.
