The Essays and Articles section is not intended to present an absolute position on agnosticism. Rather it is intended to challenge, to amuse, and to encourage thought.
A cross-section of reflections on the essay by its major practitioners over four centuries, this collection includes seminal accounts of the essay that are less accessible in English scholarship, notably Max Bense’s “On the Essay and Its Prose.” A formidable bibliography of more than 170 works on the essay follows, as does a topical index reorganizing these entries. Indeed, part of the current bibliography’s aim is to provisionally adopt the distinction that Klaus makes in the introduction between essay and article—we have chosen to headline on the essay, rather than essays on the essay.
