Parallax 21 (2):183-195 (2015)

Georgios Tsagdis
University of Westminster
"Lies never happen." Yet we find ourselves facing, still, the question of truth. We face transfixed for millennia an unsetting sun, our necks twisted askew in a blinding gaze. Or is it rather, that this question, a question too great for thought and time, has not yet even unfolded? Or again, are we not perhaps caught in a more modest predicament, suspended between the two hyperboles, neither here nor there with regard (a gaze and guard at once) to truth, in a space of shadows, a space neither of darkness, nor of the high noon. What is the true difference, what is the meaning, of these errant paths?
