Example text

In lieu of an answer, let me here conclude simply by being clear about the immense stakes involved in the mission of the present volume, which, as I suggested, is not just to narrate but to prepare to imagine.

And the relation with the gods, including the pragmatic relation of discourses, does not obey a pragmatics of border to border, between the two perfectly defined blocks or two armies, or two verbal sets, confronting each other. On the contrary, it is a place of ceaseless negotiations and ruses. Which means that there is no reference by which to judge the opponent’s strength; one does not know if s/he is a god or a human.

Omissions are purely an artifact of the need to capture a kind of ‘‘lossy,’’ reducedinformation image of the volume as a whole not redundant with the volume’s table of contents.
