Back to anti

January 31, 2011

Per Rebecca, it seems like I should go back to "anti" as the organizing force of the thesis. It always has been–I’ve just been looking for the right words for it–other ways I think about it is, "with + against" (working simultaneously with and against a form or idea) ; being outside the box but still near enough to it……)

But relooking at anti in the dictionary, feel silly that I ever doubted myself. Here it is in black and white:

anti
"identical to in form or function, but lacking, opposite or contrary in essential respects"

anti-hero
anti-climax
anti-matter
anti-Christ

anti is good because it defines: either form or function has to be the same….
