We are living at a moment of political disorientation. Distrust is common. Suspicion is rampant. Why do we consider some things assured and certain while others are contested? What is the difference between physics and politics? We need to think about how trust and distrust work in these domains.
"The Hermeneutics of Suspicion" is meant to be a section of the larger project I am calling The Empire of Disorientation. It is intended to be the final chapter of that text.
