"Home is where we start from" (D.W. Winnicott)
 
"...the root of history is the working, creating human being who reshapes and overhauls the given facts. Once he has grasped himself and established what is his, without expropriation and alienation, in real democracy, there arises in the world something which shines into the childhood of all and in which no one has yet been: homeland." (Ernst Bloch)

Essays

An "essay" is an attempt... A venturing forth to explore and/or test ("assay")... An interpretive or analytical report of what has thereby been encountered.... While I am not sanguine about reasoning from etymology (à la Heidegger...), and even leerier of reasoning from homonymy and other irrationalities (à la Lacan...), I am impressed that all discourse is rhetorical (arises from persons' aspirations...). Therefore no symbolic form is to be dismissed out of hand, but rather interpreted and situated, and, where appropriate, creatively and nurturingly (re-)appropriated by responsibly generative individuals in community -- in what Hans-Georg Gadamer called: "the conversation that we are" (Reason in the Age of Science, p. xxiii).
