  • The title of the Project was taken from Odysseus’ deceptive reply to Polyphemous while imprisoned in the Cyclops’ cave. When Polyphemous asks Odysseus his name, he replies, “Outis" (nobody). The Project was inspired by questions posed in Husserl’s Cartesian Meditations: How far can the transcendental ego be deceived about himself? And how far do those components extend that are indubitable, in spite of such possible deception?
