Methods Devour Themselves is a dialogue between fiction and non-fiction. Inspired by Quentin Meillassoux's Science Fiction and Extro-Science Fiction that was paired with an Isaac Asimov short story, this book examines the ways in which stories can provoke philosophical interventions and philosophical essays can provoke stories. Alternating between Benjanun Sriduangkaew's fiction and J. Moufawad-Paul's non-fiction, Methods Devour Themselves is an interstitial project that brings fiction and essay into a unique, avant-garde whole.
Brilliant...loved every page!
I’ve never read anything like this before and it didn’t disappoint. This was my first introduction to each author and after reading this I’m compelled to read more of their works. Benjanun especially delivers wonderful and relevant material and Mofouwad-Paul applies an excellent lens to her groundbreaking science fiction.
I’m still in awe at how much so enjoyed reading this.
