“We have been condemned to see only one side of the truth. However, see,ng only one side means seeing nothing.” Cemil Meriç’in Dünyası is an invitation to those who want to enter his world and a key book to those who want to get to know him completely. Cemil Meriç is an author, who does not accept the truths without questioning, in other words, does not deem them as metas for the taking to be owned for life; he sees them as partial and temporary truths that we can only approach step by step through a long and patient search. This selection of Cemil Meriç’s works, compiled by Mustafa Armağan, reveals how an ‘even seeker’ mind might as well transform into a ‘thirsty’ heart, and how much hard work it requires for it to float towards wisdom through knowledge. A wide garden, a world full of restrictions. Animals strolling around Trees, water and freedom. Trains don’t stop at that remote place. My father sat on one side of the oil lamp; me on the other side. We didn’t talk. Sometimes we both read. Sometimes I read alone.
