FROM THE EDITORS

On Maladies

The theme seems to us to describe perfectly the era where progressive
thinking meets the rigidity of traditionalism. This is not to give credence to
the hyper-present and artificially constructed controversies which occupy news
headlines and social media posts, but rather the timelessness of sentiments
and actions which inspire bouts of euphoria and suffering.
