This paper explains that, in "Vernon God Little "by DBC Pierre, it makes perfect sense for Vernon to believe that the ever-changing sense of knowledge he experienced in his home town (being wrongfully blamed for murder), helps him find some sense of order in Mexico. The author points out that the ending reflects this mode of thought when Vernon realizes how reality, as he knows it, ultimately goes back to the quote by Jesus. The paper relates that the concepts of death, the law and societal norms are constructed by human beings within the anti-foundational philosophical position Pierre constantly creates in his narrative and character development.
From the Paper:"This is a real time philosophy question. The kitten in this box, definitely gonna die at some moment, and Manual Cunt asks if it may as well be called dead already, technically, unless somebody's there to see it still alive, to know it exists" (Pierre 18). This presentation will offer the central philosophical perspective of "Anti-foundational" thought within classical reasoning. This philosophical premise makes knowledge transient and human belief systems the only proof of `reality' or `existence'. The quote that I have chosen reflects a conversation that Jesus has with Vernon, which reflects the idea of death as being invented by human belief systems. When Jesus tells a story about a cat trapped within a box about to be killed by a deadly gas, he presents the question: Is the cat already dead?"
