After progress: Notes for an ecology of perhaps

Perhaps! – But who is willing to concern himself with such dangerous perhapses! For that we have to await the arrival of a new species of philosopher, one which possesses tastes and inclinations opposite to and different from those of its predecessors – philosophers of the dangerous “perhaps” in every sense. –And to speak in all seriousness: I see such philosophers arising.

To be a hero and traitor: A reflection on truth-telling and fear

Preamble on fear

but when we are silent we are still afraid. So it is better to speak,
remembering we were never meant to survive. (Lorde, 1978: 31-32)

Technically there are five of you, but actually only four. Really you are three and one other.

None of you are really broken, but all are damaged, bar one. Small, glazed, white, glossy.

Three old, one new. Slip cast, tipped out of a plaster mould, handles moulded too, joined later.
