Inscriptions, an international journal of contemporary thinking on art, philosophy, and psycho-analysis, invites contributions to our upcoming open issue (vol. 3, no. 2). We are looking for well-crafted and skillfully written scholarly essays and literary fiction (poetry, aphorisms, short stories, fables, literary essays, etc.) that in some way engage our mandate.Read more about Inscriptions 3, no. 2: Open Invitation
When Abraham decided to set out to murder his son Issac, and in so doing obey the words of his God, he by the same token betrayed the laws of his community; conversely had he adhered to those laws, he would have betrayed his own, most deeply constituted truth and being. To Søren Kierkegaard the meaning of Abraham’s sacrificial act was key to understand faith. This issue of Inscriptions interrogates the notion of a leap of faith through essays by Jørgen Veisland, on the profound effects such a leap can have on a subjectivity characterised by relational and indeterminate differences; Siobhan Doyle; Kresten Lundsgaard-Leth; Alexander Velichkov; and Tidhar Nir. We are also thrilled to present searching poetry by Daniel Fraser and that icon of the deconstructionist movement, Christopher Norris.
