Untimely Meditations

The Untimely Meditations series offers short, provocative essays from Germany—available in English for the first time—that draw on philosophy and theory to address a range of cultural topics, from the digital to the erotic, from totalitarian literature to business writing, and from lawful anarchy to unnatural passion.
