Product Description

Book Description

German Phenomenology Makes Me Want to Strip and Run through North London Page seven – I’ve had enough of Being and Time and of clothing. Many streakers seek quieter locations and Marlborough Road’s unreasonably quiet tonight. If it were winter I’d be intellectual, but it’s Tuesday and I’d rather be outside, naked, than learned – rather lap the tarmac escarpment of Archway Roundabout wearing only a rucksack. It might come in useful. I can’t take any more of Heidegger’s dasein-diction, I say as I jettison my slippers. When I speak of my ambition it is not to be a Doctor of Letters or to marry Friedrich Nietzsche, it turns out, or to think better. It is to give up this fashion for dressing. It is to drop my robe on the communal stairs and open the front door onto the commuter hour, my neighbour, his Labrador, and say nothing of what I know or do not know, except what my body announces.
