    The Quaternary Investigation into the Evolution Toward the Uniqueness in Shakespeare


    Quietus Editorial


          The essays in QUIETUS will differ from those in JAQUES (which acknowledges proto-quaternary thinkers) and INQUEST (which inquires into the history of Shakespearean misrepresentation) by investigating advanced social and political systems and ideas in the light of the Sonnet philosophy and the dynamic of the plays.
          The works of Shakespeare already exercise considerable influence in the social/political sphere. The universal interest in his plays and poems and their inclusion in curricula for study in many countries have ensured that the many moral issues he addresses have become part of the fabric of thought.
          Never before though has there been an opportunity to apply to the social/political arena an understanding of Shakespeare based on the philosophy he articulated in his Sonnets, as the philosophy behind all his plays and poems. What before has been only intuited or suspected of the thinking behind the Sonnets, has now been published in the 4 Volumes William Shakespeare's Sonnet Philosophy. The recent discovery of the philosophy makes it possible to examine in greater depth the social and political situations that were in part influenced by Shakespeare's works.
          Over the next few years, topics such as the American Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, Nature and the environment, Feminism and Gaia, will be considered. The idea is to see how Shakespeare's mythic philosophy can contribute to the current understanding in those areas.
