On Essayistic Thinking

(2019)

Abstract
Since Montaigne introduced the essay, it has always offered a critical mode to explore one’s subjective position in a perpetual changing world. These characteristics elucidate its popularity beyond the realm of literature. Today, the essay form became a preferred form for contemporary artists to produce speculative fictions, to offer new ways of comprehending ourselves, our relation to the world and to suggest new politico environmental imaginaries. Supported by the essay’s self-reflexive, speculative and dialogical qualities, I explore in my paper the notion of ‘essayistic thinking’ as a valuable notion to cope with times that demand for elasticity.
