The Smell of Fried Bonito is the fourth novel of the Turkish psychotherapist and writer Engin Geçtan. It is a rediscovery of Istanbul’s charms, beauty, and magic, narrated in the form of a phantasmatic journey through ages and cultures. Struggling with the sense of worldlessness and alienation, Engin Geçtan’s protagonist represents “the desire to live more than one life” in order to achieve self-knowledge. Besides the vivid descriptions of people and places, the novel meditates on concepts like “self” and “the other”, “native” and “foreign”, etc.

The new issue of the Slovenian cultural monthly Apokalipsa reveals the horizons of Islamic philosophy, critical theory, and political science. The volume covers a broad scope of topics and schools – from the emblematic treatise of Averroes where he defends the use of the Aristotelian philosophy within the Islamic thought, to contemporary reflections on theology, human rights, East-West intercultural dialogue, and Islamic feminism.
