“Writing is a strange invention.
One might suppose that its emergence
could not fail to bring about profound changes
in the conditions of human existence,
and that these transformations
must of necessity
be of an intellectual nature….
Yet nothing we know
and the part it has played
in man’s evolution
justifies this view.”
– A Writing Lesson, Tristes Tropiques
