Kicking-Off...and my apologies to Dostoevsky
The title of this weblog is 'Footnotes from the Underground,' a play on Fyodor Dostoevsky's famous work Notes from the Underground. In what is considered Dostovesky's transitional work, he attacks Enlightenment rationalism, rails against the dehumanizing aspects of urban centers and paints an intricate psychological picture of humanity. I cannot promise such lofty goals in this weblog, but it is Dostoevsky's discontented, non-conformist drive towards the complexities of truth that I hope to emulate.
So, cheers and let's kick-off.
