Propositions instead of conclusions

Yet another invitation to perplexity

This chapter summarises major propositions of the book, providing provisional closure for my initial perplexity. Ending the book with propositions rather than conclusions does not provide a certainty but it offers a provisional generalisation with its limitations clearly visible and that warrants further studies. Further studies through new cycles of the circulation, i.e. further de-scriptions and contextualisations, are necessary for acceptance of the propositions. A book makes a contribution only if it becomes a departure point for another study – if it becomes yet another invitation to perplexity.
