Project Description

At this moment I am working on a book of essays about the time spirit in the eighties and nineties, the period before nine-eleven, and all it’s consequences, before general use of Internet, before cell phones. I describe my own position in this world from a very personal point of view, relating it to philosophical questions regarding that period of time.
