"The essay is a genre in itself – one that lies between art and science. It is joined to science in how the essay form strives towards knowledge and how it engenders the making of statements, and to art by its mode of knowledge and expression. Unlike the scientist, the essayist's subject is not one of knowledge itself but an experienced reality, and by the essayist confronting themselves via this subject, they also represent themselves. Unlike the artist, the essayist does not make their subject, they find it: their art is the art of thinking."
