Space for Fragmentation

You were complicit (!) in calling this piece an auntie: part Uncle Huxley’s literary device [afterall, it held syntheses] and part not [in its multilinearity]. It was a short piece, but also of indeterminable length [what’s the page count anyway?] It was unable to give things full play, but allowed fuller play than Time Must Have a Stop (1944).


“While brevity usually defines an essay, voluminous works like John Locke's An Essay Concerning Human Understanding and Thomas Malthus's An Essay on the Principle of Population provide counterexamples.” (, March 2010)
