 About the Book 

Amidst competing claims of beauty, truth and goodness, Trajan, a young man named after a once celebrated Roman Emperor, attempts to decipher why it is that Kant is wrong, love is capricious, and why you should never take advice from a puppet. In thisMoreAmidst competing claims of beauty, truth and goodness, Trajan, a young man named after a once celebrated Roman Emperor, attempts to decipher why it is that Kant is wrong, love is capricious, and why you should never take advice from a puppet. In this fictionalized diatribe against modern accounts of Eros, York explores the interconnections between love, death, and philosophy. The author follows various philosophical and theological meditations as espoused through the musing of several hedonistic college students as they attempt to navigate the world conferred upon them. Their desire for consistency lays bare the disconcerting conclusion that our current conception of love as yearning can only, logically, end in death.
