Description

LIBIDO SIGNIFICANDI intrudes itself into the center of the key intellectual discussions of our time. It does nothing less than propose a new way of thought, of cognizing, a new intellectual sensibility. Written in an appealing style, aphoristic yet transgressive, it is an attempt to unify linguistic, unconscious and quantum paradigms. It predicts a new direction of evolution and could be instrumental in changing the future of mankind.show more

Review quote

"My professional opinion about Dr. Ge Moll's work is that it represents an unusually high caliber of erudition, an unusually broad range of many different fields of sciences, philosophy, psychoanalysis, semiotics, etc., and a most credible and interesting way of integrating the contributions from these various areas." -- PROF. JAMES S. CROTSTEIN, M.D., "Vice President of North American Psychoanalytic Association"show more

Flap copy

The book is presented as a stylistic battle between Nietzsche, Pascal, Sancara, Krishnamurti, Heidegger, Arto, Lacan and Novalis styles of writing which, entering into semantic polyphony, demonstrate a new way of thought Logical Counterpoint as Logic of Logical Poly-Voices. Starting from Meister Eckhart and Nietzsche's "Poverty of Values" and "Repudiation of Values," the authors propose a new practice called the "Resignification of all Meaning." This practice involves the cogitative technics of De-semantism (to release the world from being confined into meaning) and Omni-semantism (to restore the omni-connectedness of all meanings). LIBIDO SIGNIFICANDI or The Lust for Meaning offers a new synthesis for the Sciences and Humanities (Naturewissenshaften and Geistwisenshaften) and, by proposing the hypothesis of the Objective Psyche of the Universe, shows how to span the Subjective Psyche of man and the Objective Psyche of the universe. In Book I Anima Mundi (the world soul) appears to the Western spirit in a negative way, as Asemantic Abysm, whereas in Book II it is presented in a positive way, the Eastern way, as Objective Psyche of the Universe.show more
