What’s in a name?

So, why does this blog have this name? Is it because of the Spanish Inquisition? The answer is something perhaps more expected. It comes from ‘inquirir’ in spanish, there is also the english word inquire, which is related to ask a question, ask about something. In reality this blog has this name because of two of Jorge Luis Borge’s essay books: Inquisiciones & Otras inquisiciones. These are masterpieces in the art of essay of diverse topics. I read it a long time ago, so please don’t ask me details about them, I just remember that reading them was for me a great revealing and transformative experience. From what I recall Borges didn’t inquire with anyone, those essays were a lonely business. What would Borges do with WordPress? Just ignore it perhaps. I like the fact that this can be a place where essays become open systems.
