I’ve just finished a memoir. I call it…

 Confessions of a Young Philosopher

Here’s what it’s about:

Confessions offers an original take on a spectrum of issues that no contemporary thinking person can easily escape: the asymmetrical relations of men and women; love, sex, and seduction; Marxism, existentialism, utopianism, and anti-humanism; relations between the races, identity politics, anti-semitism- ideas and issues lived through in one woman’s exhaustively “examined life.”

For me, the passionate history of a feminine life had to be thought through philosophically.  I was at the point where the thesis and the antithesis negated each other.  On paper, a student of Hegel could have worked out the dialectical synthesis.  But I wasn’t living on paper.
