I should not like my writing to spare other people the trouble of thinking. But, if possible, to stimulate someone to thoughts of his own - Ludwig Wittgenstein

If I had to write a book to communicate what I'm already thinking before I begin to write, I would never have the courage to begin. I write a book only because I still don't exactly know what to think about this thing I want so much to think about, so that the book transforms me and transforms what I think - Michel Foucault
