Last Tuesday, we had the pleasure of inviting one of our undergraduate faculty members, Sabrina Dalla Valle to our bookstore for a reading and discussion of poetics and its connection to philosophical research.
We thank all those who attended and helped to create a beautiful evening in our bookstore.

About the book: Composed in a hybrid form that braids personal narrative with philosophical reflections, Sabrina Dalla Valle’s book ponders the complexities of human communication and perception. It time-travels from the historical present to the ancient past through the reverberating voices of the oldest known thinkers. Along the way, it reaches out to mirrored existences that are as fathomless as the infinitesimal connections between our cells. In her desert journal, philosopher’s notes take the form of old chants and tales that emerge anew as thought-scapes embodying a timeless ritual of gazing at the gods.
