Modernity, as practiced and prosecuted in the inheritance of European thoughforms, rests on several profound undergirding structural supports that are invisibilized.
In this penetrating volume of essays, connection phenomenologist Natureza Gabriel divines the thoughtforms of empire lurking beneath modernity. He explores Supremacy Mind, the annihilation of animacy, the transmogrification of darkness into evil, the migration of notions of Enclosure from land to psyche, and the metaphor of the Mine, with intent to unmask the taproots of alienation.
For someone who uses language with the precision Gabriel does, the title alone should make you shiver. This book is like one of those anatomy experiments where they dissect a cadaver and rebuild it in layers before your eyes so that you can see the entire structure from inside. This is what Gabriel is doing for the edifice of the modern world. Breathtaking, deep, necessary, powerful, and sometimes terrifying stuff.
