The First Person Singular
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungAlphonso Lingis' singular works of philosophy are not so much written as performed. This book looks at how Lingis elaborates on the subject of fantasy, of obsessive commitment, of noble actions, with the subject enacting itself through an engagement with others, including animals and natural forces.
