101 Experiments in the Philosophy of Everyday Life [9780571212064]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Roger Pol-Droit's highly original book is a reassessment of our day-to-day engagement with life. In 101 short texts, written with limpid elegance, Droit invites us to reconsider our most ordinary actions as unexpected philosophical events: peeling an apple, trying to lie in a hammock, watching someone sleep, hearing your voice on an answering machine, playing with a small child - activities that, when considered outside of their routine, invite us to experience the familiar in startling new ways. Droit encourages us to go further: pretend to be an animal of your choice, create a wall with your hands, try to walk around your room in total darkness, spend time in the Underground - and observe your oddity.
AUTHOR: Roger Pol-Droit was born in Paris in 1949 and is a graduate of the Ecole Normale Superieure. He is a philosopher, a researcher at the Centre de la Recherche Scientifique, and a columnist for the French daily, Le Monde. He is the author of La Compagnie des Philosophes.
