The Necessity of the Impossible

By Nicole des Bouvrie

Philosophy ultimately searches for what lies beyond the possible. This question is what makes us human. We ask about the limits of language, the framing of the world, and how by breaking with what always already is we invite a madness that makes further understanding impossible.

This book presents a call to withstand the normalcy that presents itself as continual variations of the ‘new’. To face the illusions that clutter reality and to engage in asking the final question that is left for us to answer, to un-answer, to suffer again and again. The question of the necessity of the impossible.
