Lovers of Sophia is a collection of twenty distinct philosophical reflections written over the course of a decade, which cut across the entire philosophical spectrum featuring original interpretations of almost every canonical thinker, in order to discover new concepts with a potential to catalyze scientific and political thought.
The backbone of this collection is constituted of critical, and in some cases iconoclastic, contemplation of Plato, Aristotle, Spinoza, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, James, and Wittgenstein. It is from this prestigious intellectual background that Jorjani develops original ideas on philosophy and esotericism, proving that philosophical thought can take place in an artistic and literary medium.
Lovers of Sophia demonstrates revolutionary ideas that defy conventional binaries, such as Science and Religion, East and West, radical Right and far Left, and rejecting any subdivision of Philosophy into distinct and specialized fields such as Ontology, Epistemology, Aesthetics, Ethics, and Politics. Lovers of Sophia also serves to provide readers with a conceptual background to Jorjani’s earlier works Prometheus and Atlas and World State of Emergency.
Ultimately, Lovers of Sophia represents a Promethean rebellion against all forms of tyranny, including the tyranny of the majority. Its goal is the highest human self-consciousness and the most creative self-determination.
