The Method is a manuscript of theorems written by Archimedes in the tenth century, a palimpsested text. Steensen takes The Method and its history as a jumping-off place for a meditation on the relationships developed between a person and her historical truth. She treads carefully in the terrain of fact that foregrounds investigations, and emerges centuries and centuries on.
