Without Opposite: A Philosophical Adventure (Unlock Tao) is a work of fiction in the coming-of-age subgenre. It is aimed at young adult readers and was penned by Marcel Eschauzier. The book follows the journey of the beautiful Shatarupa as she leaves her native India for Germany after her difficult relationship with her family prompted her to try to find some understanding of herself and her place in the universe. As she and her companions experience different aspects of life, they push toward a new view of the world and idea of the self, but only if they can maintain control of themselves.
The problem with discussing philosophy academically is that it feels like something dry and irrelevant to the average person rather than the dynamic lived experience that philosophical ideas truly are. What better way for Marcel Eschauzier to break open the shell of philosophy than to embed the discussion into an exciting narrative that is as cerebral as it is rousing? It’s a testament to the skill of the author that he has so effectively fused the high-concept ideas of one of the essential sciences into such an exciting tale of a young woman on a journey of self-discovery. Without Opposite is a perfect springboard for readers who have the spark of interest in philosophical ideas and are keen to fan that spark into a flame, with exciting and realistic characters exploring big ideas in a way that makes sense for real people. This book is not to be missed and I recommend it to all.
