source: European Graduate School   2014年12月26日
http://www.egs.edu/ Avital Ronell, philosopher and author, takes us through some thoughts on walking as a philosophical act. She explores the walker as well as possible accidents or diversions, tumbling and toppling over which may find us or which we may find along the way. Encounters and their counters, interlocutors and those who we come up against, Ronell takes us through literary tracks and typologies of the walker. Through the Reveries of a Solitary Walker of Rousseau as well as Nietzsche, Celan and DeMan, and Heidegger, Ronell expounds on variations of this theme in the opening lecture of the series at the European Graduate School in August 2014.
