My name is Tsvetelina, but I write under the unusual pseudonym of Antheya, which would be the translation of the name my Mother chose for me into old Greek, a tongue, I find fascinating as tradition, meaning and sound. The language of the greatest ancient philosophers transcends the idea of the immanent presence and elates to the eternity of concepts and values beyond the singularity of the personal experience of human existence.
So there it is – Antheya, the Goddess of Flowers.
My first book, which I humbly decided to present to the broader public, is called Requiem for the Death of my Mother, which, unlike the connotation brought immediately by the title, I consider to be a highly positive work, reaffirming the state of humanity, placed on the perspective of the realization of the human in the ever-changing cycles of the Being.
It is a holistic venture to the realm of the ultimate unknown, yet deeply felt and anticipated.
At present, I am working on a series of dialogues, called “The Young Philosophers”. They are five, each focused on different, vital societal problematic. Coined around the concept of the living word and immediate articulation of the truth as closer to sensation and intuition than to cold abstraction, they are an attempt to reconcile modern philosophy’s detachment of humanity and comrehensiveness and bring back philosophy at its home – human questioning heart.
I hope you have the courage and plunge into this experience with me, and, most of all, enjoy it!
