The Siege Perilous: A Philosopher's Throne Free Tip Jar Option


A special philosophical edition of MacroMicroCosm Literary & Art Journal

The Siege Perilous of Arthurian legend, was a seat at the Round Table so dangerous it made lesser warriors tremble. None sat upon it, until Sir Percival, later Sir Galahad, whose destiny to find the Holy Grail deemed him worthy. Far from the Grail’s romanticized French Catholic roots in the 13th century, the Siege Perilous may contain far older rites from Welsh, Breton or Celtic traditions of Kingship or Rule. Today, our Holy Grail is a worldview and philosophy which brings all people closer to a sense of mutual community without requiring homogeneity. Compassionate coexistence without similitude. A bonded and well-working community is one, where differences of opinion do not create enemies, but enrich the whole and give new perspectives to all. Only with humility and open eyes for many voices can this be achieved.

Can the Siege Perilous once more have a collective of word-warriors, gracious and thoughtful, to set upon its’ throne?

Philosophy and worldview frames every action and reaction a person has. Thus, we at MacroMicroCosm declare the reforging of the Siege, and give a platform for philosophical treatise and essay, with respect and community at its’ core.

Will you take the perilous seat, and put your worldview or philosophy up to be viewed with distinct and critical eyes? Will you dialogue with others, who may share alternative opinions, and find a common ground?

MacroMicroCosm is open for essays (500 - 4500 words) on personal philosophy & worldview, as part of a continued discussion on coexistence, community and tolerance. We want to give voice to the philosophical views around us, to debate and inspect them. Through inspection, to discover the commonalities which can bring beauty and compassion to this world on fire.

The throne is empty.

Long Live the Perilous Thought’s Throne.
