Temporary Truth: The Case, Good As Any, For The Repression Of Reason
 

A Philosophical Novel On The Repercussions Of Repression, By Beat Waydown

Authored by Beat Waydown

A critical, socio-political satire on the psychological underpinnings of cultural revolutions. The author parodies events in the Europe of Kafka and Dostoevsky, from the potato revolts of 1841, to the political intrigues of 1918, sourcing a wide range of classical philosophic conceptions, to deconstruct the current, international, political 'terroir.' The book, however, is not an attempt at a historically accurate account of actual events, but, rather, portrays the vicissitudes of a fantastic set of fictional characters. It manages to be quite funny, despite the serious topics of oil, religion, war, and sex. It is as if De Sade met Rousseau, Diogenes Voltaire, Heraclitus Parmenides, or Corso Koch, never mind Hannah Heidegger, over a century-old Barolo, and goes on to show that time does not change, but people do.
