A Note on the Shadow Text (or Parerga)

Panourgia, Neni

The author explains how the creation of a Web-based version of her book allowed her to make full use of parerga as a way to interrogate and dissent from the primary text, following in a philosophical tradition of the parergon that began in the 18th century with Nikolaos Mavrokordatos' Philotheou Parerga and has been further developed by Immanuel Kant, Arthur Schopenhauer, and Jacques Derrida, among others.
