The Radix is an unusual work of scholarship poised on the precarious threshold between poetry and philosophy. It is a poem, or rather a series of poetic essays, because all the elements of which it consists are poems. The title invokes the metaphorical root of a word, the radix or etym, which at once concentrates and radiates living energies. The overall thesis is that each word is, or contains, its own poem. Language itself, as Emerson once phrased it, is «fossil poetry». Each word is primordial. It is the center and, in a certain sense, the whole of language. And it is the intent of The Radix to bring that primordial Word to life again.

About the Author:

The Author: Philosopher/poet Scott Thomas Eastham holds a Ph.D. in Religious Studies from the University of California. As The Radix demonstrates, his work tends to violate the conventional canons of academic hyperspecialization by making connexions, rather than by promoting divisiveness. For the past decade, accordingly, he has taught Cross-Cultural and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities at The Catholic University of America, Western Maryland College, and Concordia University in Montréal. His range and diversity is exemplified in his published books, which cover many genres and disciplines, and include Paradise & Ezra Pound, Wisdom of the Fool, Nucleus, and The Media Matrix.
