He is also known for his ground-breaking exploration of the subject or the self. Terence Cave discusses these and other key aspects of the Essais (Montaignes major work) not as philosophical themes but as features in the mapping of a mental landscape: the project of the Essais is cognitive rather than philosophical. Similarly, he reads the Essais not as essays in the literary sense but as trials or soundings in which the manner of writing - the shape of the sentences, the use of metaphors and other figures - is crucial. Taking passages from many different chapters of the Essais, this book guides the reader through Montaignes investigation of the subtle shades and stirrings of the mind.
