Product description

Synopsis

Asking how it is possible to feel at home in the world, given that the world is independent of and indifferent to our wishes, this text draws on books, films and cultural history to argue that we can feel comfortable in the world and in relationships with others only if we value touch over sight.

About the Author

Gabriel Josipovici is professor of English in the School of European Studies, University of Sussex and in Autumn 1996 visiting professor of comparative literature at Oxford.
