A child of a dysfunctional household, the eleven-year-old, scraggy boy named Toine confronts a high school education system. Despite feeling shamed into silence, he continues to make a stand for dissident thought. Teachers, shocked, disapprove of their pupil's verbal revolt. The boy's apparent exclusion from civilian society makes him feel depressed. He develops thoughts of suicide. To save himself, he escapes in daydreams. He picks up a writing hobby and starts to blur the lines between dreams and reality. In his mind, the boy has convinced himself he is a military recruit living in a semi-detached bunker. When his general, Bonifacius, and nurse Gertrude take him to a psychologist, his world falls apart. Will Toine survive the school year? This novella is a critique of science education. It questions a society’s motive for enforcing political correctness.

It has always been a pleasure to me to watch the flowers and insects in their struggle to keep alive. When the sun was hot they would come to life again, and give themselves up for an hour or so to the old delight; the big, strong flies were just as much alive as in midsummer. There was a peculiar sort of earth-bug here that I had not seen before--little yellow things, no bigger than a small-type comma, yet they could jump several thousand times their own length. Think of the strength of such a body in proportion to its size! There is a tiny spider here with its hinder part like a pale yellow pearl.

For both continental and analytic styles of philosophy, the thought of Martin Heidegger must be counted as one of the most important influences in contemporary philosophy. In this book, essays by internationally noted scholars, ranging from David B. Allison to Slavoj Zizek, honour the interpretive contributions of William J. Richardson's pathbreaking Heidegger: Through Phenomenology to Thought. The essays move from traditional phenomenology to the idea of essential (another) thinking, the questions of translation and existential expressions of the turn of Heidegger's thought, the intersection of politics and language, the philosophic significance of Jacques Lacan, and several essays on science and technology. All show the influence of Richardson's first study. A valuable emphasis appears in Richardson's interpretation of Heidegger's conception of die Irre, interpreted as Errancy, set in its current locus in a discussion of Heidegger's debacle with the political in his involvement with National Socialism.
