The book series “hopes to include not only thought-provoking thought regarding what’s thought-provoking, but also at least one book that is (not only thought-provoking but also) thought-initiating—only once this initiation into thought is gone through does what is thought-provoking usually if not ineluctably lead to thought” – Toufic.
The other of the first two books in the series is The Dancer’s Two Bodies by Jalal Toufic, also offered through Art Jameel Shop (subject to availability).
